Making Temperature-Sensitive Shipments Simple.

The Basics

CryoLogistics’ SnowSHIP™ combines the natural cooling power of liquid carbon dioxide (CO2), with high-efficiency insulation and proprietary heat transfer and control systems to create the ultimate temperature-controlled 'carbon dioxide reuse' shipping solution. SnowSHIP™ allows for temperature-sensitive products to be shipped in optimum conditions (+/- 1°C of the set point), leagues better than traditional reefer units, dry ice or gel packs. SnowSHIP™ has no moving parts, emits zero NOx or particulate matter, and produces minimal noise, allowing your temperature-sensitive shipment to have a lower carbon footprint compared to diesel-powered cooling solutions.

CO2 vs. Diesel Comparison

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 SnowSHIP™. SnowSHIP™ allows the transportation industry to easily adopt a green solution while also increasing food security and meeting the growing environmental regulations.

The Power of Natural Refrigerants

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. Compared to synthetic refrigerant GWPs which 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. A simple solution to a complex problem.
