Shortly after Coca-Cola announced its commitment to R744 technology, a leading Brazilian manufacturer of plug-in commercial refrigeration equipment has announced the launch of an R744 cooler that reduces harmful emissions to the atmosphere by 97%.

The new 400-litre cooler by Metalfrio Solutions uses natural refrigerant CO2 (R744) and ensures optimal cooling performance with pulldown time (time required to cool a load of drinks) decreased by 45%. According to the company, the new product reduces direct emissions to the atmosphere by 97%.

The cooler has been tested for the past months in Brazil as well as abroad, with units for example having being installed in the U.S. Senate. The company now plans to deliver the first batch of R744 coolers to its customers in 2010.
