Structural Concepts’ Displays Comply with CARB Regulations Ahead of January Implementation
Cases now emit the lowest amount of carbon emissions of any on the market today.
MUSKEGON, MI (November 21, 2019) – Structural Concepts is pleased to announce that all of its self-contained refrigerated display cases now comply with upcoming CARB regulations, ahead of their January implementation. This accomplishment was driven by a product development team logging more than 4,000 hours in its industry-leading research, development and product testing facility.
The regulations are designed to limit the growing use of hydrofluorocarbons or HFCs. The most widely used cooling agent in commercial refrigeration, HFCs are now a known contributor to climate change. Set to take effect in a handful of states on January 1, 2020, new, more stringent regulatory requirements are also in process or under consideration in several other states. Often a barometer for nation-wide acceptance, broader adoption of the CARB regulations is expected.
Replacing refrigerants in its condensing units with approved low-emission refrigerants, SCC’s self-contained cases now have approximately one quarter the global warming potential (GWP) of their predecessors. The new EPA-compliant cases – which are used in both food service operations and supermarkets – do not add costs or represent any new maintenance challenges for customers.
