By Jim Gibbins - 1st June 2021

Ireland - Thermo King, part of Trane Technologies, has confirmed its trailer refrigeration unit manufacturing production line in Galway, Ireland, has been awarded the ISO 14064-1 (Carbon Neutrality) certification from the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI), the first in the country and one of the first in Europe.

The Advancer A-Series trailer production line, which was introduced last year, reduced energy used in its production processes by 60% compared with previous models. The refrigeration units are also 30% more fuel-efficient than the market average. The manufacturing line achieves carbon neutrality through a combination of efficiency measures and external carbon emission reduction initiatives. The award is based on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions data across the entire manufacturing process including welding, e-coating, assembly and unit testing.
