Frigesco is to present the latest developments in its flash defrost technology which works by harnessing waste heat from refrigeration systems to carry out very low energy defrosts, in the process reducing supermarket cooling energy costs by up to 20%.

The technology (pictured) is currently undergoing field trials in working supermarkets in the UK, South Africa and the US. It is being presented at CleanEquity Monaco 2015, which takes place on 5-6 March.

Frigesco recently secured UK government support in the form a Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) grant to develop the system for use in air source heat pumps (ASHPs) with a joint research project with heat pump specialist Glen Dimplex.
