Thermo King Advances Temperature Control Technology through Revolutionary Solutions Introduced at Intermodal Europe

6th November 2014

Visit stand B10 to learn about new technology concept for intermodal, the industry’s first proactive controlled atmosphere solution and our commitment to reduce greenhouse gas footprint during intermodal transportation.

WHAT: When transporting perishable or temperature-sensitive products, temperature control is critical. If not kept at the appropriate temperature conditions, the quality of the cargo can quickly deteriorate. At the same time, the transportation industry is under enormous pressure to be efficient and sustainable.

Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport temperature control solutions for a variety of mobile applications and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, will address these challenges and feature a first-to-market concept refrigeration technology, introduce new proactive controlled atmosphere solution and answer your questions on new refrigerant solutions.

WHO: Media are invited to join Thermo King product managers, industry experts and leadership team at the Stand B10 at the Intermodal Europe show in Rotterdam, Netherlands to learn more about these innovations and to discuss the company’s recently announced climate commitment.

On September 22, Ingersoll Rand made an environmental commitment to its employees, customers and shareholders – a roadmap to significantly increase energy efficiency and reduce our climate impact from our operations and product portfolio by 2030 (with milestones at 2020).

The commitment includes reducing GHG emissions related to its operations by approximately 35% by 2020; reducing GHG emissions related to its products by 50% by 2020; and investing $500 million in product-related research and development over the next five years to fund the long-term reduction of GHG emissions. This commitment is estimated to result in the avoidance of approximately 20,850,000 metric tons of CO2e globally by 2020, which is equivalent to the energy used by nearly 2 million homes for one year.
