ATLANTA, GA, Oct. 10, 2023 — Hillphoenix, a pioneer in designing environmentally sustainable refrigeration systems, has once again earned the GreenChill Store Certification Excellence recognition from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
This achievement recognizes the commercial refrigeration systems manufacturer that installed the most advanced refrigeration systems in GreenChill-Certified Stores in the past year. Inclusive of the 2022-2023 cycle, Hillphoenix systems are now installed in over 80% of GreenChill-Certified Stores.
“At Hillphoenix, we are guided by a purpose to invest in the future by developing sustainable technologies and refrigeration solutions,” said Scott Martin, Hillphoenix Senior Director of Industry Relations and Compliance. “We are proud to be a founding member of EPA’s GreenChill program and honored to be recognized for making an impact in the industry for our continuous efforts in developing future-focused sustainable products in partnership with customers who have the same commitment to low global warming potential refrigerant solutions.”
This is the 12th consecutive GreenChill Store Certification Excellence recognition for Hillphoenix since it was created in 2011.
“Hillphoenix, a founding GreenChill Partner, continues to set an example for other systems manufacturing Partners,” said Cindy Newberg, Director of EPA’s Stratospheric Protection Division. “We congratulate Hillphoenix on their impressive twelfth consecutive year of installing the most refrigeration systems in GreenChill certified stores.”
Hillphoenix has a long history and consistent record of advancing sustainable refrigeration:
- In the mid-1990s, the company introduced 2Cool® systems, one of the first cooling technologies designed to reduce global warming emissions.
- In the early 2000s, Hillphoenix rebranded a growing portfolio to Second Nature® and installed its first Second Nature low-temperature CO2 secondary system and CO2 Cascade system.
- In 2012, Hillphoenix installed the first North American CO2 Transcritical Booster System, furthering the company’s capabilities in providing both low- and medium-temperature refrigeration to display cases and walk-ins without relying on hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants.
- Hillphoenix has shipped thousands of Second Nature systems using low global warming potential and natural refrigerant solutions.
