CO2 is often regarded as the “big problem” when it comes to climate change. While in some regards it is a hazard, in other situations it can be the answer. In fact, when used as a refrigerant, CO2 can make a big difference when it comes to keeping people, products, and our planet cool.

As a refrigerant, CO2 has the lowest possible Global Warming Potential (GWP) with a rating of “1” causes zero ozone depletion, it is non-toxic, and non-flammable. This means that people and products can be cooled safely without negatively affecting our planet’s climate. It is also exceptionally versatile and can be used in many different cooling applications, including commercial, industrial, and transport applications.
When paired with the technology in the Danfoss Multi Ejector Solution, CO2 can enable refrigeration systems to outperform traditional HFC systems in terms of energy efficiency in all climate zones, while reducing the impact on our environment—it’s the ultimate win-win.
The use of CO2 as a refrigerant was previously limited to cooler regions, or required complex, expensive systems. With the Danfoss Multi Ejector Solution it’s now becoming a truly global solution. Now even the hottest regions like the Middle East, Southern and Latin America, Australia, and Asia can enjoy all the benefits that CO2 has to offer. This includes valuable energy saving potential—up to 18% annually compared with CO2 booster system.
“CO2 has a bright future as a refrigerant in our industry. It is natural and environmentally benign, with virtually no direct climate impact when used as a refrigerant. The Danfoss Multi Ejector Solution makes it easy to gain all the benefits of using CO2. It makes it possible to save energy in all climates, reduce refrigeration platform complexity and not least, reduce the carbon footprint of the system. That’s why We Love CO2.” says Hans Ole Matthiesen, Director of Segment Marketing, Food Retail.
To help spread the word, we’re offering some exciting opportunities to our customers, business partners, and the public. Our Mobile CO2 Training Unit is on a world tour, providing in-depth training and certification to industry professionals. We also have online classes about CO2 theory, use, and safety available for free on Danfoss Learning, our digital education portal.
