The Chemours Company, together with Climalife UK, won the Environmental Project of the Year award at this year’s ACR News Awards on 17 February in Birmingham.
The project was a cooperative effort between Chemours, Climalife UK, Ultra Refrigeration and Lincoln Co-op. It involved the installation of a new system using Opteon XP40 refrigerant from Chemours in a newly built Lincoln Co-op convenience store. Opteon XP40, which has very low global warming potential (GWP), is an alternative to high GWP HFCs such as R-404A.
The convenience store, located in Newark, is the first of its kind in the UK to use Opteon XP40 in a new store installation.
Diego Boeri, global business director for Chemours Fluorochemicals, said: “We are honored to receive this recognition and would like to congratulate our project partners Climalife UK, Ultra Refrigeration and Lincoln Co-op.”
