Sainsbury's Tests Carbon Dioxide-Refrigerated Trailer For Transporting Chilled And Frozen Products

September 9, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Grocery chain Sainsbury’s partnered with transport refrigeration company Carrier Transicold to test a naturally refrigerated trailer in transporting chilled and frozen products. Part of the retailer’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint, the two-year trial of the carbon dioxide-refrigerated transport system uses a modified version of Carrier’s NaturaLINE refrigeration system. If the test would prove successful, the retailer would be able to reduce its CO2 emissions by 70,000 tons, Sainsbury’s said. Other retailers, such as Delhaize America and the Hannaford grocery in Turner, Maine, are also using CO2-based refrigeration systems.
