Low-GWP refrigeration using carbon dioxide
CO₂ is fast becoming the preferred refrigerant in Food Retail applications and Danfoss is leading the way towards the adoption of CO₂. With the implementation of refrigerant regulations like the Kigali amendment to the Montreal Protocol (Global) and F-gas regulative (Europe), the quest for alternative solutions is accelerating even further and CO₂ is now recognized as the most viable and efficient solution among natural refrigerants in Food Retail applications.
Danfoss has pioneered CO₂ technologies for both trans-critical and sub-critical systems for more than ten years and has gained valuable experience from thousands of installations all over the world. The many installations have proved that CO₂ can be applied in supermarkets enabling both environmentally friendly and energy saving systems in all types of stores.

Discover the opportunities of CO₂ refrigeration
Danfoss leads the development of solutions and components for CO₂ refrigeration and offers a wide range of products specifically designed for CO₂ transcritical systems.
The truth is Cool(selector®2)
Coolselector®2 features unbiased calculations for the selection of refrigeration and air conditioning components based on the user’s requirements or based on standard operating conditions.
Refrigeration pressure transmitters
Refrigeration pressure transmitters are used for commercial air-conditioning and for commercial and industrial refrigeration applications. They are made in stainless steel to be compatible with fluorinated and natural refrigerants and laser welding with no soft seals ensure hermetic tightness for decades.
Momentum grows for refrigerants with low-GWP
As momentum grows for refrigerants with Low-GWP, industry needs consider safety, environmental and economic factors. Technologies like demand-response and thermal storage are helping to decarbonize the electrical grid and shift electricity consumption, contributing to a low-GWP future.
CO₂ energy efficiency in supermarkets
Interest in carbon dioxide (CO₂) as a refrigerant in food retail applications has never been more intense than it is today and as such, there has been a lot of discussion with regards to the energy efficiency of these systems. The energy discussion is focused on two factors: climate change performance and financial justification.
What’s your response to refrigerant legislation?
All over the world, the phase-down of conventional HFCs in food retail applications has become the center of attention in the effort to combat climate change. Most recently, at the meetings of the parties under the Montreal protocol in Dubai where qualitative global phase-down of HFCs was agreed with a target of quantifying the details in 2016.
One last chance for applied CO₂ training in BaltimoreFriday, January 4, 2019
The industry's response to the Danfoss Mobile CO₂ Training Unit in 2018 was so positive, the unit will remain in the United States a little longer to give installers, service technicians, and OEM engineers in the Baltimore, MD area another opportunity to receive accessible CO₂ refrigeration systems knowledge and training.
