Icegreen, il gelato si produce con meno gas serra

Industria green
Debutto il 20 ottobre a Hots Milano per la macchina della Nemox

 
BRESCIA. Sarà ufficialmente
presentato il 20 ottobre, alla fiera Host Milano 2019, l’innovativo progetto «Icegreen» di Nemox International per la riprogettazione di macchine per la produzione di gelato in grado di ridurre le emissioni di gas serra.
L’azienda di Pontevico, leader nel settore della macchine da gelato e sorbetto, intende rispondere in questo modo alla vera sfida del terzo millennio, ovvero la lotta contro l’ inquinamento e le minacce ambientali. Verrebbe da chiedersi che relazione ci sia tra il cambiamento climatico e le macchine da gelato. In effetti, i gas refrigeranti comunemente utilizzali in frigoriferi, congelatori o climatizzatori sono tra i maggiori responsabili del riscaldamento globale.

CLIMATE CHANGE, GLOBAL WARMING, ICE CREAM MACHINES, ARE THEY RELATED?

Nemox presents the ICEGREEN project

During the HOST 2019 event, Nemox will present on its Stand HALL 10 A76-B77, the first working prototypes of a domestic and a professional machine,
fueled with ecological gas.

Nemox started the ICEGREEN project to replace current refrigerants with alternative fluids, such as propane (R290), with a GWP index of 3 CO2 units. This means reducing the impact on emissions by 99.95%. The ICEGREEN project has received funding from the European Community on the LIFE 2018 call, the European Commission’s program to support innovation in favor of the environment and climate. For the presentation of the project, Nemox has made use of the collaboration of Dr. Matteo Falasconi, expert consultant who deals with LIFE projects and Senior Project Manager at CSMT Gestione scart.

Nemox welcomes you and thanks you for attending this workshop. We hope that the topics discussed will meet everyone's interest.

CLIMATE CHANGES, GLOBAL WARMING, WHAT RELATIONSHIP WITH ICE CREAM MACHINES?

The Earth is protected, 30 kilometers from its surface, by a layer of ozone that absorbs high energy ultraviolet radiation, dangerous for the health of living organisms and not because it is able to modify DNA.
Some industrial chemical compounds such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), freed from refrigerators, spray cans and industrial plants, have affected this protective layer causing a real hole at the Antarctic. Ozone thus loses its ability to
absorb and reflect ultraviolet radiation which, in this way they manage to cross the stratosphere and in addition to being dangerous to human health, also cause global warming.
