01.

Identification

CryoCity is an innovation for Light Carrier Vehicle refrigeration unit using dry-ice. It offers sustainability, silence and operational excellence.

The solution works by injecting liquid CO2 that is then instantaneously transformed to dry-ice; a powerful cold source at -78°C to keep products under temperature control in a refrigerated truck. Recyclable CO2 is used as coolant/refrigerant to maintain the goods' temperature and in turn, reduces environmental impact: no pollution, no engine, and no noise. CryoCity is also an ideal solution for cold production that can be easily combined with a clean motorization: electric, biogas, hydrogen or hybrid.
