ATLANTA - The Coca-Cola Co. announced the release of its 2006 Environmental Performance report and noted that it has made continual progress in efforts to employ commercially viable HFC-free refrigeration technologies. The company said it had continued to invest in carbon dioxide (CO2) refrigeration and, by the end of 2006, 6,000 units with CO2 refrigeration had been placed in markets throughout the world.

Coca-Cola also said that in 2006 it had achieved the conversion to HFC-free insulation for more than 1,300 models of refrigeration equipment, representing over 98 percent of the new equipment it purchases.

The company also continued to address energy consumption of refrigeration equipment. By the end of 2006, approximately 200,000 units of a proprietary energy management system had been placed in operation. The combined annual energy reduction associated with this technology is estimated to be more than 250 million kilowatt-hours, with a corresponding greenhouse gas reduction of more than 100,000 metric tons.
