CO2 Refrigeration

Carbon dioxide (CO2) refrigeration systems provide low global warming potential (GWP) solutions for grocers as well as several environmental and operational advantages. At Hussmann, we are committed to sustainable refrigerants, including CO2. Talk to your Hussmann sales rep to design a solution to reach your store’s unique goals.

Why use COas a refrigerant?

There are many reasons to consider using CO2 for new stores or remodels:

  • Environmentally friendly with Low GWP of 1
  • Renewable and Natural refrigerant
  • Non-toxic and non-flammable
  • Meets updated regulatory compliance standards including the AIM Act, with very little possibility of future regulation
  • Lower long-term operating costs with reduced maintenance compared to traditional refrigerants
  • Can be used for a variety of supermarket and industrial refrigeration applications
  • CO2 refrigerant (R-744) is less expensive than synthetic refrigerants
  • Size needed for compressors and pipe sizing is reduced (due to efficiency of the refrigerant), making systems more compact compared to HFC systems
