CryoLogistics is developing a disruptive technology for the $300B cold chain industry that can replace or hybridzie the costly electromechanical refrigeration (reefer) systems now used to transport high value perishable food and pharmaceutical products around the globe. Mechanical reefers are expensive to own and operate, require constant maintanence and supervision, emit greenhouse gases, noise and particulate matter. They are prone to operator error and mechanical failure causing product spoilage and non-compliance with strict environmental and food safety regulations. Our passive, natural refrigeration system addresses those problems and positively impacts equipment operating costs, performance, versatility, utilization and profitability.

Putting Nature to Work!

Natural refrigerants are making a comeback! Carbon dioxide, which was once used as a natural refrigerant, fell out of favor following the introduction in the mid-1900s of synthetic refrigerants like HFC, HCFC and CFC. The Montreal Protocol has led to a global phase down of synthetic refrigerants, resulting in a revitalized interest in nature’s climate friendly alternatives. Carbon dioxide is an abundant, naturally occurring, efficient, economical, safe and stable alternative that is receiving widespread acceptance for commercial and industrial refrigeration. At Cryologistics we believe that nature holds the cards when it comes to technical innovation. Our team is putting nature’s refrigerant back to work.

Applications

Our refrigeration technology system can be adapted to fit the needs of a variety of environments including:

  • food and pharma production,
  • over-the-road trucking,
  • intermodal rail & marine transport,
  • air cargo,
  • cold storage warehousing,
  • food distribution centres,
  • grocery retailers,
  • food service providers.

About the Cold Chain

The term cold chain applies to the worldwide production, transportation, storage, distribution and sale of temperature sensitive goods, predominantly food and pharmaceutical products. The cold chain is a $300 billion global enterprise where performance is measured according to the uninterrupted supply of high quality and affordable perishable product to consumers.

The cold chain industry is striving to improve its performance:

  • through better packaging, handling and shipping procedures;
  • by linking product quality to price point;
  • by improving compliance with national and international food safety regulations;
  • by moving final product processing towards the end of the value chain;
  • by reducing the industry’s carbon footprint; and
  • by adopting innovative technologies that create new operating efficiencies.

 

Our technology will contribute to these performance initiatives by:

  • lowering the total cost of equipment ownership;
  • increasing equipment versatility and optimization;
  • reducing shipping costs; and
  • improving margins.
