Carrier Transicold Expands Education Efforts with NaturaLINE Donation to the Philippines


To help educate companies and organizations in the Philippines about sustainable cold chain technologies, Carrier Transicold has donated a 20-foot NaturaLINE refrigerated container unit to the Cold Chain Innovation Hub (CCI-Hub), located in Manila. The donation will help companies learn to identify and develop lower-carbon, energy-efficient refrigeration practices in the Philippines for use in the cold chain. Carrier Transicold is a part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable, and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.

The CCI-Hub is the official platform of the “Global Partnership for Improving the Food Cold Chain in the Philippines” project. It serves as the project’s central ecosystem of technical resources, training, knowledge sharing and stakeholder collaboration. The project was established by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization together with the Philippines Department of Environment and Natural Resources, and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority.

“In support of Carrier’s Healthy, Safe, Sustainable and Intelligent Cold Chain Program, we are pleased to donate a NaturaLINE refrigerated container unit to help educate companies and organizations in the Philippines on using sustainable natural refrigerants like carbon dioxide (CO2) with an ultra-low global warming potential (GWP) in place of conventional synthetic refrigerants,” said Mr Tan Sooi Kuan, Director of Finance for Carrier Transicold.

“We genuinely appreciate the donation from Carrier Transicold. Using their technology and systems as a teaching point will enable us to educate companies in the Philippines on sustainable technologies for perishables and pharmaceuticals. The NaturaLINE unit will help us raise awareness and increase knowledge of the use of energy-efficient, sustainable natural refrigerant alternatives in the cold chain,” said Jan Dusek, Head of Global Partnership for CCI-Hub.

The NaturaLINE unit utilizes CO2, which has the lowest global warming potential of all refrigerants used in commercially available container refrigeration systems today. As a result, the NaturaLINE unit is setting a clear standard in terms of environmental sustainability and is currently the most environmentally sustainable alternative for refrigerated marine transport.

The NaturaLINE refrigeration container unit features:

•        Power consumption comparable to Carrier’s best-in-class performer and the industry’s bestselling unit for 15 years running.

•        Best-in-class carbon footprint.

•        No CO2 refrigerant tax.

•        No intermediate refrigerant steps.

NaturaLINE refrigeration units are among the solutions offered through Carrier’s Healthy, Safe and Sustainable and Intelligent Cold Chain Program to preserve and protect food supplies, medicines, and vaccines.
