As an African leader in this field, we will showcase a series of products and case studies on, highlighting the viability of CO2 technologies in developing markets. In addition, we will demonstrate the practicality of COunits in high-ambient climates (South Africa falls in the so-called ‘non-transcritical operation zone’).

With the use of R22 banned in South Africa, national retailers are investing in new generation refrigeration technologies that will be future-proof to any upcoming legislation. We have already installed transcritical CO2 systems across 47 Woolworths and Makro stores.
