CO2 Refrigeration //



Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a naturally occurring substance that is produced by most living organisms during respiration and is absorbed by plants. It can also be used as a refrigerant (technically known as R744) and is quickly becoming the refrigerant of choice for food retail, agricultural and light industrial refrigeration installations. With a GWP of 1, this environmentally friendly, non-flammable refrigerant has excellent heat transfer properties, which make it the ideal solution for various applications. CO2 is a proven refrigeration solution, providing the end user with a future-proofed installation, helping them to achieve environmental targets linked to the Kigali amendment to the Montreal Protocol and the F-Gas regulations.

The team at Clade have significant experience and expertise in the design, manufacture and installation of CO2 products and systems and have been directly involved in hundreds of CO2 refrigeration projects throughout the UK and Ireland. By combining refrigeration with heating and hot water requirements, we are able to engineer sustainable refrigeration and heating installations to the highest degree of efficiency, helping our customers to de-carbonise their businesses.

We have a range of customisable products and services suited to food retail, agriculture and light industrial refrigeration applications, please click on the links to find out more.


CO2 is considered an environmentally friendly gas, with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1. It is a natural refrigerant because it is not manufactured in a chemical plant. Using Clade’s refrigeration systems can, therefore, help you reduce your carbon footprint significantly.

Clade has been committed to high-quality refrigeration and engineering services for more than 36 years. In the last few years, Clade moved toward natural refrigerants and deployed over 500 natural refrigerant products across the UK. With a history of rigorously designing and manufacturing high-quality products and a desire to innovate within the refrigeration sector, Clade is at the forefront of the move to more eco-friendly refrigeration and heat pumps.

We use CO2 refrigerant in all of our refrigeration systems, and CO2 is considered an eco-friendly gas because of its low Global Warming Potential (GWP). It is non-flammable and has low toxicity levels, so it’s considered a high-safety refrigerant. Additionally, it’s an effective refrigerant with excellent thermo-physical properties and a higher volumetric capacity than conventional refrigerants.

Clade’s refrigeration solutions are comprehensive. Our team of engineers can design your refrigeration system and manufacture and supply it from our product range. Then, our installation team will ensure your new refrigeration system is fully functional and that you’re aware of how to use it. Finally, our after sales support team can provide ongoing maintenance to ensure continued functionality of your refrigeration system. You can pick and choose as many or as few of our services to suit your requirements as needed.
