Grocery Refrigeration System Sets New Environmental Benchmark

The first grocery store in the nation to earn the platinum store award from the Environmental Protection Agency’s GreenChill Partnership is the Star Market in Newton, MA.

The advanced refrigeration technology in the new store cuts the use of refrigerants 85% compared with a typical supermarket, meaning the store has significantly reduced impact on climate change and the stratospheric ozone layer. “Supermarkets and their customers know that it’s cool to earn the EPA’s GreenChill Store certification, but the only way to describe the first platinum-level GreenChill supermarket in the nation is, ‘wicked cool,’” said Gina McCarthy, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation. “This store shows that smart design and advanced technologies help us right now to better protect our climate, the ozone layer, and our health.”

The GreenChill Advanced Refrigeration Partnership is an EPA cooperative alliance with the supermarket industry to promote advanced technologies, strategies, and practices that reduce refrigerant charges and emissions of ozone-depleting substances and greenhouse gases. GreenChill partners emit about 50% less emissions than the industry average, and pledge to continually lower them as part of the program. GreenChill has 46 partners, with more than 6500 retail food stores in 47 states.

    My lesson in dog moose encounters came in the ’80s during one of my first winters in the state. I was breaking several municipal laws by allowing my Lab, Alex, to run alongside me unleashed as I was cross country skiing on the Chester Creek Trail.
