HUSSMANN 1 FRESH IDEAS
The demand for ever more stringent “green” standards is intensifying for the food retailing industry. Consumers increasingly demand
greater sustainability and government regulations
require it, such as the Department of Energy’s higher
energy-efficiency requirements imposed in 2017.
As these trends escalate, new refrigerant developments
now offer food retailers important opportunities to
both decrease energy use and play a role in safeguarding the environment while reducing global warming.
One of the most promising developments is the use of
propane R290, an environmentally safe, non-tox-ic, natural refrigerant that’s already part of major
initiatives by Target, Lidl, and Whole Foods to boost
sustainability in their refrigeration systems.
The Environmental Protection Agency has listed
R290 as an acceptable refrigerant substitute under its
Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP), and also
exempted it from the venting prohibition in Section
608 of the Clean Air Act.

for Food Retail Refrigeration Systems
New refrigerant developments
offer food retailers important
opportunities to fight climate
change and reduce global warming.
