Thermo King, a global manufacturer of transport temperature-control solutions and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, announced that it will offer an option for its truck and trailer products that is designed to help lower the greenhouse gas footprint for North America customers.

This solution is now an option due to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s recent Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) approval of the next generation refrigerant, R-452A which has a nearly 50 percent lower global warming potential (GWP) compared to refrigerants that are currently being used today for transport applications

All of Thermo King’s truck and trailer products using R-452A are a part of Ingersoll Rand’s EcoWise portfolio of products that are designed to lower environmental impact with next generation, low GWP refrigerants and high efficiency operation.

“Our customers demand maximum reliability, uptime and total cost of ownership, and I’m confident that our products using this next generation of refrigerant will continue to deliver on our brand promise. Our European truck and trailer products have been using R-452A since 2015, and we’ve seen its benefits from precise temperature control and efficiency to preserving the overall residual value for customers,” said Ray Pittard, president of Thermo King.

“Offering our customers a choice of sustainable products and innovations is critical especially as environmental regulations increase globally. I’m proud of our company’s commitment to sustainability, and I’m proud of Thermo King’s continued leadership position in delivering the best in overall transport refrigeration solutions,” said Pittard.

Thermo King will continue to offer its transport customers its current line of transport refrigeration products, and ensure that optimum levels of service are offered throughout the products’ lifecycle, the company says.
