Coca-cola places CO2 coolers in House of Representatives

Introduction is part of soft drink maker’s bid to cut its carbon footprint at each step in the manufacturing, distribution and sales processes

The House of Representatives will be among the first locations in the US to test new climate-friendly, HFC-free, energy-efficient Coca-Cola coolers.

Four beverage coolers will be installed at the House of Representatives in the coming weeks, and up to 1,800 Coca-Cola coolers and vending machines will be deployed throughout the U.S. and Canada later this year. These include 1,400 climate-friendly coolers and vending machines that will be deployed at the venues during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

The new climate-friendly Coca-Cola coolers use carbon dioxide (CO2) and HFC-free insulation.

The coolers include an intelligent energy management system (EMS-55) that cuts energy use by an average of 26 per cent, Coca Cola claims.
