Nestle To Buy Only Eco-Friendly Freezers To Store Its Ice Cream

December 4, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Non-toxic fluor-containing coolants used in the world’s freezers have worked well for more than half a century, but the environment has paid a price: they depleted the ozone layer and contributed to climate change. Manufacturers are turning back to naturally occurring substances, including carbon dioxide, ammonia, water and air as well as hydrocarbons (e.g., propane and iso-butane) that are harmless to the ozone layer and have no effect on climate change. Nestlé announced that beginning in January 2015, every new horizontal chest freezer it buys to store ice cream will use these natural refrigerants rather than synthetic refrigerants.
