NASRC Joins Climate & Clean Air Coalition
September 22, 2016
The North American Sustainable Refrigeration Council (NASRC), an association of food industry retailers and natural refrigerant suppliers committed to advancing natural refrigerants in the retail food sector, has joined the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC). NASRC wants to further drive the change necessary to create a more level playing field for natural refrigerants.
By participating in the CCAC, NASRC will utilize the larger platform to encourage governments, end-users, and equipment manufacturers to take action on issues related to natural refrigerants. Together, the two groups will work to reduce the growth of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and more.
NASRC’s priorities include:
- Increasing the number of service technicians who are qualified to work with natural refrigerants.
- Helping to establish the necessary codes and standards to ensure safe use of these refrigerants.
- Encouraging utilities to establish incentives for natural refrigerant use.
- Working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and equipment-certification organizations to speed up approval of natural refrigerant technologies.
“The NASRC serves a critically important role, one that enables supermarket industry stakeholders to have a unified voice and effectively interact with governments on policy issues,” said Eduardo Navarro, VP and general manager of the systems division at Hillphoenix, a designer and manufacturer of commercial refrigerated food display cases and application systems. “It has become the industry’s go-to nonprofit partner and the dedicated, expert voice of the food retail natural refrigerants movement.”
Added Todd Washburn, director of sales of marketing for the retail division of True Manufacturing, a maker of commercial refrigeration equipment: “The NASRC is working tirelessly to show how natural refrigerants can be a win for the environment and for business. Its commitment and leadership in sustainable retail food refrigeration has now been recognized by the CCAC, enabling the NASRC to bring its expertise and action-oriented approach to the international arena.”
