Advanced Refrigeration Technologies for Energy Savings

NASRC Case Study #2 - BP Marks & Spencer
NASRC Case Study #2: Transcritical CO2 - BP Marks & Spencer Case Study

This case study completed by the North American Sustainable Refrigeration Council (NASRC) looks at the installation of a transcritical CO2 system at a BP Marks & Spencer store that showed energy savings of 41% in comparison to a control store of the same size with a HFC system.

NASRC Case Study #5 - DeCicco & Sons
NASRC Case Study #5: Transcritical CO2 with Adiabatic Cooling - DeCicco & Sons Case Study

This case study completed by the North American Sustainable Refrigeration Council (NASRC) looks at a transcritical CO2 booster system with adiabatic pre-cooling that was installed by DeCicco & Sons, resulting in electricity use of 7-37% less than the baseline system of a comparable store using R-404a.
