Going green is the natural thing to do
Keeping environmental sustainability has been one of the main objectives of SandenVendo.
In 2017, in compliance with EU F-Gas ban regulation, the company has developed its innovative R290 Vending Machines: the G-Drink and G-Snack Hydro Carbon versions with R290 refrigerant, a natural, non-toxic refrigerant that is an eco-friendly alternative to the CFC/HCFC/HFC fluorocarbons related to the ozone damage.
SandenVendo has successfully achieved this challenge by pioneering an innovative and patented process where R290 is safely applied to the current range of refrigerated vending machines.
The G-Drink HC and G-Snack HC, with a Zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and very low GWP (Global Warming Potential), are crafted with an innovative system designed with sealed environments so that the food and electronics areas remain separate from the cooling area to avoid contamination and guarantee complete safety.
Thanks to the F-Gas Regulation, by 2030 the European's gas emissions will be cut by two-thirds compared with 2014 levels.*
Thanks to major progress in terms of research and hi-tech equipment, today the manufacturing players have several less harmful alternatives available at their disposal; changing a company’s approach on preventing F-Gases emissions is an ambitious yet necessary goal that SandenVendo has decided to take on in the hope of serving as an example for other firms to follow.
Sanden group strives to create ECO-friendly solutions by applying Natural Refrigerants, in order to reduce the direct and indirect emission of greenhouse gases and less impact on GWP.
Both CO2 (R744) and HC (R290) refrigerants have minimal GWP (Global Warming Potential) and Zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential).
