With over 100 supermarket stores in the US and Canada using CO2 (in secondary loop, subscritical or transcritical), the commercial refrigeration market is moving towards CO2 in North America. Also the first UL listing for a CO2 booster system by US-based company Hillphoenix could further transform the supermarket system landscape. All latest developments for commercial, industrial and heat pump applications using CO2 in North America will be discussed
