Steps Towards A Greener Cold Chain
Research has noted that pollution from transport refrigeration unit vehicles could hand EU members a bill of around €22 billion over the next 10 years. With the size of the refrigeration fleet also on the rise.
The Global Refrigerated Trailer Market is expected to stand at US$7171.4 million by the end of 2021. The emission levels and reduction of weight via trailers is of focus for manufacturers.
Transportation Refrigeration units are on the whole unregulated and are large polluters. The sorts of pollutants in question are connected to the premature deaths of 400,000 in the EU and 600,000 in India. So the projected expansion of the global cold chain is likely to have significant environmental and health impacts.
