The hidden impact of transport refridgeration

Before renewing your refrigeration unit for the next decade, consider the true cost of sticking with diesel . It’s essential to weigh not just the direct costs, but also the environmental and air quality impacts. Learn how to save on cost and the environment.

The shocking impact of diesel refrigerated units

Did you know that the diesel fridges used in chilled and frozen deliveries…

Emit as much as nitrogen oxides (NOx) as 16 trucks

…that’s 23 kg of lung-damaging NOx pollution every year

Over 40 times more cancer-causing particulate matter (PM) than a truck

The pollution happens in our depots, workplaces and streets.

While operators upgrade their truck fleets to meet the latest standards, diesel transport fridges have been overlooked despite this huge impact to air quality.
