CryoLogistics’ SnowSHIP™ pallet containers combine the cooling power of liquid carbon dioxide (CO2), a natural refrigerant, with high-efficiency insulation and proprietary heat transfer and control systems. SnowSHIP™ has no moving parts, it emits zero NOx or particulate matter, and minimal noise, removing the constraint on inner-city night-time deliveries.

SnowSHIP™ has a cooling range of +5oC to -30oC, and can consistently maintain the setpoint temperature within a +/- 0.2 degrees significantly improving food safety, product quality and shelf life.

Carbon dioxide is a byproduct of many industrial processes. The potential to generate revenue from this byproduct has spurred a movement towards reusing captured carbon dioxide. 

The transportation sector accounts for ~14 percent of the world’s total CO2 emissions. CryoLogistics is trying to change this with the first ever, liquid CO2-powered SnowSHIP™ containers. With a net zero carbon footprint and zero NOx PM emissions or noise, SnowSHIP™ allows the transportation industry to easily adopt a green solution while also increasing food security.

Nothing preserves food quality and value retention as effectively as refrigeration. Natural refrigerants have been in use for over 200 years, but the return to natural refrigerants by the cold chain industry has only recently begun. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the one natural refrigerant that has found broad favour across that industry.

Carbon dioxide is a natural, non-toxic, non-flammable substance with an ozone depletion potential of zero and a global warming potential (GWP) of 1. Synthetic refrigerant GWPs range from 675 to 14,000. CO2 can be easily recovered from industrial gas emissions for use as a natural refrigerant, thereby relieving the cold chain industry’s dependence on synthetic refrigerants and fossil fuels. It is a simple solution to a complex problem.
