Refrigerated transport is essential to ensure that perishable goods arrive safely from farm to fork. With increasing urbanisation – by 2050 it is expected that 80% of Europe’s population will live in urban areas – the need for a well-functioning food cold chain will increase as well. From energy efficiency and refrigerants through to regulations on engines and air pollution, often at city level, transport refrigeration is facing a triple challenge. Manufacturers have to address emissions from refrigerants, CO2 and particles from the engine, provide high energy efficiency and ensure low noise emissions. At the same time, they are expected to remain cost-effective.
