BRIDGETON, MO (USA), August 27, 2023 – Hussmann, a Panasonic company, is proud to announce it has been selected as a recipient of the ENERGY STAR®  Emerging Technology Award.

Each year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reviews and selects products that have the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The EPA recognized Hussmann Vertical Reach-in, Low-Temperature merchandisers VRL1B1A, VRL2B1A, and VRL3B1A as recipients of the 2022 ENERGY STAR Emerging Technology Award.

These cases are part of Hussmann’s microSC product portfolio that consists of self-contained merchandisers utilizing R-290 (propane), a natural, non-toxic refrigerant that is environmentally safe, energy efficient and reduces the amount of refrigerant emissions into the air. 

In addition, this product uses energy-saving, variable-speed compressor technology along with 120V power, hot gas defrost and environmentally friendly insulation foam.
