In order to reduce the global footprint of carbon, METRO AG has roped in Carrier Commercial Refrigeration (CCR) to supply natural refrigerant carbon dioxide systems to major chunk of its European stores. CCR and Metro have made an agreement that allows CCR to install high-efficiency remote cabinets and cold room equipment using CO2.
Under F-gas Exit Program, MERTO has planned to switch its 760 cash & carry stores to green refrigerant systems and renovate its stores in next three years.
“The close cooperation between Carrier and METRO will accelerate METRO’s F-Gas Exit program, resulting in a strong refrigerant losses reduction, lower electricity demand and substantial carbon footprint reductions for METRO’s customers, our climate and our society. METRO’s commitment is a 50 per cent carbon reduction from 2011 until 2030,” said Olaf Schulze, Director Energy Management Investments and Technical Solutions, METRO AG.
To ensure the greatest energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions, METRO stores will use Carrier’s CO2OLtec Evo system with ejector technology and CO2 pumps. In recent months, METRO AG and CCR have jointly developed a standardized concept for cabinets and refrigeration systems focused on the total cost of ownership to drive cost and operational savings.
