Join us for our next E360 Webinar, “Pioneering Natural Refrigerants: A Grocery Case Study” on Thursday, April 26 at 2 p.m. EDT / 11 a.m. PDT.
Few food retailers have staked their reputation on environmentally friendly practices more than the natural foods industry leader, Whole Foods Market. At the heart of Whole Foods Market’s sustainability initiatives is their pioneering approach to the use of refrigeration architectures based entirely on ultra-low GWP, natural refrigerants — a strategy that makes them one of the first retailers in the United States to embrace propane (R-290) in their stand-alone display cases.
In our next E360 webinar, we will give you an opportunity to hear firsthand from Tristam Coffin, director of sustainability and facilities for Whole Foods Market’s northern California region, as he discusses the factors driving the retailer’s pioneering strategy of natural refrigerant use.
We will also provide an update on the regulations governing the use of R-290, including the potential changes to charge limits and evolving safety standards. Finally, for an OEM perspective, the webinar will feature a leading manufacturer of R-290 stand-alone commercial refrigeration equipment — one which has recently migrated its entire stand-alone product line to R-290.
Webinar attendees will learn:
- The latest global regulations governing R-290 use
- Drivers behind Whole Foods’ natural refrigerant strategy and R-290 adoption
- An OEM perspective on making R-290 the basis of its stand-alone units
Whether it’s low-charge ammonia, CO2 refrigeration architectures or R-290 in stand-alone units, natural refrigerants are becoming more commonplace in commercial refrigeration. For retailers like Whole Foods, these alternatives are part of their mission to conduct environmentally friendly business practices.
This webinar will provide a unique opportunity to gain a 360-degree perspective on the subject of natural refrigerants, from the component manufacturer to the OEM to the end user. If you would like to hear multiple sides of the natural refrigerant story, please join us for this informative webinar on Thursday, April 26 at 2 p.m. EDT / 11 a.m. PDT.
