As the global demand for refrigerated products increase, it has become progressively challenging to develop sustainable refrigerated road transport (RRT) systems. Manufacturers and fleet operators have to balance the competing interests of maintaining temperature control while reducing the energy consumption and overall environmental impact of these systems.
This paper will explore how through the an analysis of existing maintenance and leakage records and mathematical modelling and experimental methods best practice guidelines for the design and development of sustainable refrigerated road transport systems were developed.
Presented in association with the FSDF – Food Storage and Distribution Federation.
Ted Perry Award winning speaker Dr Christina Francis of London South Bank University.
Christina carried out research on this topic as part of her studies at London South Bank University. The findings from this research have provided new insights into the causes of direct emissions, by identifying the most common sites for refrigerant leakage in transport refrigeration systems. This has led to the redesign of key components now the information has been shared with the wider industry is becoming generally adopted.
