Commercial refrigeration and environmental responsibility
October 24th, 2023
Commercial refrigeration, prevalent in the agri-food, restaurant, pharmaceutical, and many other sectors, plays a vital role in our daily lives. However, environmental responsibility has become imperative for companies operating in this field. Frigotech, a reference in refrigeration, is at the forefront of this eco-responsible transition. But what exactly does environmentally friendly commercial refrigeration entail? Frigotech has recognized the importance of this challenge and invested in research and development of more environmentally friendly solutions. Here are some measures recommended by the company :
Environmental impact of traditional refrigeration
Traditional refrigeration systems often use refrigerant gases that, when released into the atmosphere, contribute to the greenhouse effect and the depletion of the ozone layer. These gases, such as HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons), have a high global warming potential (GWP). Their use and uncontrolled emissions pose an environmental challenge.
Optimizing energy efficiency
Higher-performing equipment consumes less energy to provide the same cooling. By investing in modern technologies, Frigotech guarantees its customers highly efficient refrigeration systems, resulting in reduced electricity consumption and decreased CO2 emissions.
Recycling and recovery
Refrigeration systems have a limited lifespan. When they reach the end of their life cycle, Frigotech ensures that obsolete or defective components are sent to specialized treatment and recycling centers. These centers, certified and recognized for their high standards, dismantle and process the equipment to recover materials while maintaining an environmental approach. Furthermore, Frigotech contributes to creating a circular supply chain, where the recovered materials can be reintegrated into the production of new systems. It’s a responsible way to manage old components and equipment.
Beyond merely implementing environmentally friendly technologies, Frigotech is committed to training its employees and raising awareness among its clients. This approach ensures that each stage, from installation to maintenance, adheres to the best ecological practices. By choosing eco-responsible solutions, we not only contribute to protecting our planet but also ensure the longevity of your business operations.
In conclusion, although commercial refrigeration is essential to many sectors, it poses environmental challenges, especially due to the use of refrigerant gases. However, thanks to modernist companies like Frigotech, a transition to eco-responsible solutions is possible. By opting for efficient technologies, promoting recycling, and raising awareness among industry stakeholders, we are on the right track to combine commercial performance with environmental respect.
