Emerson along with Hussmann and Chemours donated refrigeration equipment to Gem City Market
Emerson is donating a unique, sustainable refrigeration architecture developed at its Helix Innovation Center in Dayton, Ohio, to the city’s Gem City Market – a collaborative grocery store to provide fresh food amid a local food desert.

To help ensure safe, high quality food at the market, Emerson is donating its Copeland scroll booster refrigeration architecture – the first technology to be commercially developed at Emerson’s Helix Innovation Center in Dayton. Emerson’s scroll booster technology enables Gem City to combine a low-pressure, low global-warming potential refrigerant with a distributed architecture, which is emerging as a sustainable alternative to large, centralized systems.

This technology will help retailers face the industry challenge of transitioning to lower global warming potential refrigerants to meet their sustainability goals and achieve regulatory compliance. Working to address food insecurity reinforces Emerson’s company.

“Creating innovative technologies that help the communities we call home is fundamental to our identity and purpose as a company,” said Jamie Froedge, executive president of Emerson’s Commercial & Residential Solutions business. “We are proud to put this technology to work and meet a community need in Dayton, where we researched and developed this leading-edge solution.“

Emerson, along with business partners Hussmann and Chemours, donated refrigeration equipment in service of this collaborative initiative. Donations include assembly components and 10 low temperature booster systems from Emerson, the assembled refrigeration system from Hussmann and low-GWP refrigerant Opteon XP10 (R-513A) from Chemours.
