5C: Cryo-City for Cleaner Cold Chain

A cryogenic solution for last mile transportation in cities

  • World Alliance Member
  • Featured Solution
  • Labelled Solution
Label Date May 23, 2019
From France
Maturity stage TRL 7 - Prototype testing in the real world

The solution works by injecting liquid CO2 that is then instantaneously transformed to dry-ice; a powerful cold source at -78°C to keep products under temperature control in a refrigerated truck. Recyclable CO2 is used as coolant/refrigerant to maintain the goods' temperature and in turn, reduces environmental impact: no pollution, no engine, and no noise. CryoCity is also an ideal solution for cold production that can be easily combined with a clean motorization: electric, biogas, hydrogen or hybrid.

The Environmental Benefits

  • Savings of 3 tons of CO2eq (equivalent carbon content) per year per unit.
  • Zero emissions: CO2, HFC (hydrofluorocarbons)

The Financial Benefits

  • An improved ecological footprint and cold chain quality at no additional cost, or even slightly lower than the alternatives.
