ECOOLTEC Grosskopf GmbH has joined the Clean Cooling Coalition (CCC) to support ambition in the phase out of fluorinated greenhouse gases and additional asks in the transport refrigeration systems.
The newly founded company, located in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Germany, has set the goal to define a new state of the art in transport refrigeration by using natural refrigerants. The recent opinion by MEP Bas Eickhout, rapporteur on the EU F-gas Regulation revision for the European Parliament ENVI Committee seeks to ban fluorinated greenhouse gases as of 1 January 2027 in transport refrigeration.
“Technological highlights of the new refrigeration machines are the almost emission- and CO2-free drive, the use of natural refrigerants with single-figure global warming potential, an overall height of only 250 millimetres for installation in the refrigerated vehicle roof, highest operational safety together with enormous available cooling capacity, coupled with extraordinary energy efficiency,” reports the press release of the launch.
“Almost the entire cold chain today could be operated without fluorinated greenhouse gases, just not the transport refrigeration sector. ECOOLTEC’s system now closes that gap and enables the food industry, for example, to actually offer ice cream and frozen pizza with the greenest footprint,” explains Dr. Jürgen Süß, who as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at ECOOLTEC is responsible for the technology.
The company was officially launched at the IAA Transportation Trade Show in Hanover this September 2022.
