Sustainable Retail Refrigeration

Sustainable Retail Refrigeration by Alan M. Foster, Judith A. Evans is a valuable reference to manufacturers, managers, and policymakers, incorporating both a design and an operational perspective. Carbon emissions from the retail segment of the food cold chain are relatively high compared to other parts of the food cold chain. Studies have also shown that food temperature is less well controlled at the retail and consumer end of the cold chain. There is, therefore, the considerable potential to optimize the performance of refrigerated display cabinets and the refrigeration systems that are used to operate them to reduce carbon emissions and to improve food temperature control. Sustainable Retail Refrigeration draws together world experts in retail refrigeration.  In a single resource, the authors cover the latest technologies and best current knowledge in the field. With increasing concerns about energy use and global warming gasses, retailers are increasingly being called to account for their actions.
