Danfloss helps Supervalu complete first all-natural refrigerant store

BY Staff Writer

Baltimore — Danfloss, a manufacturer of high-efficiency electronic and mechanical components and controls for air-conditioning, heating, refrigeration and motion systems, and provider of energy management and control solutions for the food retail industry, was chosen by Supervalue to provide a range of energy-saving products and support for a remodel project that has resulted in the development of the company’s first grocery store operating 100% on natural refrigerants. Specifically, Danfoss provided refrigeration system design and strategy to installation and commissioning.

The remodel of Supervalu’s Albertsons® store in Carpinteria, Calif., included a facility expansion – doubling the store’s footprint to 43,000 sq.-ft., and the conversion of an R22-based refrigeration system to one that uses nothing but environmentally-friendly natural refrigerants. The new system operates primarily on CO2, but also includes ammonia in medium-temperature cascade systems and propane in select self-contained floor cases.

The Danfoss products used throughout the store include CO2 controls for low-temperature applications, compressor controls, temperature transducers, pump and liquid vapor separator safety controls. The self-contained, propane-cooled floor cases also feature the Danfoss SLV controller and variable speed compressor.

In addition to helping the store save energy, money and resources by simplifying system control, Danfoss verified proper system communication between these state-of-the-art case controllers and the Danfoss control system to ensure proper monitoring.

Portland expands plastic bag ban

BY Marianne Wilson

Portland, Ore. — The city council of Portland, Ore., voted to expand the city’s one-year old plastic bag ban, voting 5-0 to phase out plastic checkout bags at an estimated 5,000 restaurants and retailers.

The ban will impact retailers larger than 10,000 -sq.-ft. on March 1, 2013, and the remaining retailers on October 1, 2013. Portland’s 2011 rule affected fewer than 200 businesses.

Retailers will still be able to provide plastic bags for bulk items, produce, meats, dry cleaning and prescription drugs.

Mark Daniels, chair of the American Progressive Bag Alliance, an organization representing the United States’ plastic bag manufacturing and recycling sector, which employs 30,800 workers in 349 communities across the nation, issued the following statement in response to the vote:

"Portland residents will be forced to purchase even more reusable bags which cannot be recycled, are predominately imported from China, and have been proven to harbor dangerous bacteria. Those interested in real solutions to reducing litter and protecting the environment should pursue scientifically sound, common sense policies – ones that encourage a comprehensive statewide recycling solution that address all forms of plastic bags, sacks and wraps – instead of targeting one product that makes up a fraction of a percent of the waste stream."

It's very sad to hear the ban
It's very sad to hear the ban is extend for an another year. The use of plastic bags should be banned as son as possible. The Govt. should stop the import of these bags. ---
