Electrolux Professional shifts to green gases in refrigeration solutions

Electrolux Professional has swapped to green refrigerants for more of its refrigerator range.

Electrolux Professional is replacing Hydrofluorocarbon greenhouse gases (HFC-gases), in 18 different product families, offering solutions with more natural, climate-friendly green gas alternatives.

In May 2021, the manufacturer first launched products using the most climate friendly CO2 natural refrigerant. The CO2 option is available for refrigerated cabinets, freezers, counters, blast chillers and several other refrigerated products.

These greener, more natural refrigerant gas alternatives are said to be safer and offer an improved operational performance, as well as increased energy efficiency. This should contribute to a more sustainable offer for customers as well as a reduced emission impact from gases on the planet.

Niklas Lindsköld, head of sustainability at Electrolux Professional said: “It is really satisfying to see Electrolux Professional being a leader in our industry by replacing HFC gases in our products with more climate-friendly, refrigerant gases. We want to drive this change, making our customers more aware of the impact of harmful gases on our planet.”

The professional kitchen is comprised of several different refrigerated products, which account for approximately 40% of the kitchen’s total energy consumption.

Therefore, Electrolux Professional has re-designed the cooling circuits in these solutions to optimise the use of natural gases, and as a result, improve product performance and energy consumption in the cooling system. The new green gases have a cooling effect that is estimated to be four times greater than HFCs. In addition, the insulations and foams of the new refrigerant solutions are claimed to be superior alternatives, offering greater safety and energy economics.

Switching to more climate-friendly alternatives supports Electrolux Professional’s ambition to reduce its carbon footprint.
