Dow Joins EPA "GreenChill" Advanced Refrigeration Partnership
The Dow Chemical Company announced that its Performance Fluids business, has signed on to the new EPA GreenChill Advanced Refrigeration Partnership. The partnership is a voluntary program to promote green technologies, strategies and practices that protect the ozone layer, reduce greenhouse gases, and even help save money by reducing energy consumption. Other chemical manufacturers, supermarkets, and refrigeration equipment makers are also involved in the program.
Dow manufactures heat transfer fluids, some of which are used as secondary coolants for an innovative new refrigeration system in supermarket meat and dairy cases that reduce refrigerant use, energy consumption, and maintenance costs.
“Dow is grateful for the opportunity to partner with the EPA and other like-minded companies to help reduce the consumption of ozone-depleting chemicals and improve energy efficiency in supermarket refrigeration systems,” said Steven Stanley, Ph.D., global business director for Dow Performance Fluids, a business portfolio that includes Dow Heat Transfer Fluids.
