Navigating the CO₂ Refrigeration Landscape

The natural refrigerant CO₂ (or R-744) is among the leading candidates for helping U.S. food retailers transition to low-global warming potential (GWP) refrigeration strategies. Although CO₂ has been used effectively in global refrigeration applications for decades, continuing advancements in CO₂ transcritical booster (TCB) technologies have made modern CO₂ systems simpler to own, operate and manage. As retailers look for ways to meet sustainability targets and comply with environmental regulations, it’s no surprise that CO₂ adoption is on the rise globally and throughout North America.
