E360 Webinar: Pioneering Natural Refrigerants, A Grocery Case Study

Thursday, April 26 at 2 p.m. EDT / 11 a.m. PDT

Few food retailers have staked their reputation on environmentally friendly practices more than the natural foods industry mainstay, Whole Foods Market. At the heart of the retailer’s sustainability initiatives is their pioneering approach to the use of refrigeration architectures based entirely on ultra-low GWP, natural refrigerants — a strategy that makes them one of the first retailers in the United States to embrace propane (R-290) in their stand-alone display cases.

Emerson's next E360 webinar will give you an opportunity to hear firsthand from Tristam Coffin, director of sustainability and facilities for Whole Foods Market’s northern California region, as he discusses the factors driving the retailer’s natural refrigerant strategy.

Webinar attendees will learn:

  • The latest global regulations governing R-290 use
  • Drivers behind Whole Foods’ natural refrigerant strategy and R-290 adoption
  • An OEM perspective on making R-290 the basis of its stand-alone units
