CCAC: Advancing Ozone & Climate Protection Technologies: Food Cold Chain Workshop

Nov 21, 2015 - Nov 21, 2015 - in Montreal, Canada

This workshop will provide an opportunity to share information and expertise on technologies and policy measures with a focus on the food cold chain -- how we bring food from farm to market. There are climate-friendly alternatives to ozone-depleting substances and high-global warming potential hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) in each part of the cold food chain where refrigeration is necessary. The food cold chain represents about a fifth of all HFCs use today, and the use of HFCs is expanding. While t

This workshop will provide an opportunity to share information and expertise on technologies and policy measures with a focus on the food cold chain -- how we bring food from farm to market. There are climate-friendly alternatives to ozone-depleting substances and high-global warming potential hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) in each part of the cold food chain where refrigeration is necessary. The food cold chain represents about a fifth of all HFCs use today, and the use of HFCs is expanding. While there is no “one-size fits all” alternative, a growing range of solutions are becoming available that protect the ozone layer, are much less harmful to the climate system and enhance energy efficiency while minimizing food spoilage.
