Hillphoenix Helps ALDI Boost Store Sustainability Through Advanced Refrigeration — And Reach GreenChill Milestone

Share Article

Hillphoenix’s Second Nature line of natural refrigeration technology and energy-saving cases have helped ALDI, a leader in the grocery retailing industry, reach a sustainability milestone: Platinum GreenChill certification in 32 U.S. stores—with more to come.

“We’re proud of our industry-leading alternative refrigerant innovations and how they help customers like ALDI further their sustainability goals,” said Scott Martin, Director of Business Development and Industry Relations for Hillphoenix.

Hillphoenix’s Second Nature line of natural refrigeration technology and energy-saving cases have helped ALDI, a leader in the grocery retailing industry, reach a sustainability milestone: Platinum GreenChill certification in 32 U.S. stores—with more to come.

Platinum GreenChill is the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s highest store-level sustainability certification for food retailers. Achieving the certification across so many stores demonstrates how ALDI is dedicated to operating environmentally friendly, high-performing stores nationwide.

Using Hillphoenix’s line of alternative refrigeration systems is a key corporate responsibility initiative for ALDI. Second Nature Advansor CO2 Booster Systems have been installed in about 50 stores. They use carbon dioxide-based refrigerant with a global-warming potential (GWP) rating of 1. By comparison, a hydrofluorocarbon-based refrigerant can have a GWP rating as high as 3985. The larger the GWP, the more a substance contributes to warming of the planet.

The Second Nature line leads the industry in alternative refrigeration solutions, including CO2, glycol and ammonia-based systems. In 2016 alone, Hillphoenix installed 109 Second Nature systems in GreenChill-certified stores operated by food retailers across the U.S.

Last fall, Hillphoenix earned EPA’s annual Store Certification Excellence award, which recognizes the commercial systems manufacturer that has installed more advanced refrigeration systems in GreenChill-certified stores over a one-year period than any other partnering manufacturer. It was Hillphoenix’s sixth GreenChill award.

Hillphoenix is a pioneer in designing environmentally sustainable refrigeration systems:

  • In the 1990s, the company introduced one of the first cooling technologies to reduce global-warming emissions.
  • About a third of systems shipped by Hillphoenix use Second Nature natural refrigerants.
  • Hillphoenix’s improvements in alternative refrigerants and energy efficiency have helped remove over 3.2 billion pounds of harmful emissions in the last two decades.

“We’re proud of our industry-leading alternative refrigerant innovations and how they help customers like ALDI further their sustainability goals,” said Scott Martin, Director of Business Development and Industry Relations for Hillphoenix. “We are committed to collaborating with customers to develop the competitive and environmental advantages of sustainable refrigeration systems.”
