CO 2 Chillers
CO 2 is a natural refrigerant and a very environmentally friendly and sustainable choice compared to the commonly used synthetic alternatives.
Here's some quick facts about CO 2:
- Some markets are only buying seafood produced using natural refrigerants
- Environmental advocates and NGOs promote it which means better public opinion and ease of new aquaculture license approvals
- CO2 is one of the only "future-proof" refrigerants... meaning it will not be phased out. In contrast, most conventional refrigerants that are popular now are slated for phase-out before the end-of-life of the equipment they are in.
- In almost all cases, CO2 chillers are a more energy efficient choice than chillers with conventional refrigerants by 15 to 40%
