Denver, October 30th, 2014 – Coolerado announces today that Kellogg’s is achieving drastically beneficial energy savings at their Mexicali, Mexico food processing plant that regularly deals with ambient temperatures exceeding 50°C (120°F). Powered by Coolerado’s revolutionary HMX cooling technology, Kellogg’s is experiencing an annual savings of $62,000 in cooling costs. In addition to energy savings, the Coolerado system also reduces Kellogg’s carbon footprint emitting only 27.37 tons of CO2 per year compared to 231.41 tons of CO2 that would be emitted from a traditional air conditioners. Kellogg’s also benefits from Coolerado’s M50 line of air conditioners because they do not use chemical refrigerants like CFCs that are believed to create greenhouse gases, deplete the ozone and contribute to global warming.
“At Kellogg’s, we take our environmental commitments very seriously and we are very pleased that Coolerado’s HMX powered air conditioners help us achieve those green goals,” stated Pedro Palacios, plant manager for Kellogg’s. “It’s not just about the bottom line and maximizing revenue here at Kellogg’s, we are very proud of our GoGreen team and initiatives and we look forward to continuing to partner with Coolerado for years to come.”
“Coolerado has always been up to the task and we thrive and exceed when given challenges like the extreme dry temperatures that Kellogg’s faces in Mexico,” stated Tom Teynor, CEO of Coolerado. “We truly respect and admire Kellogg’s environmental conscience and it feels great to help them reduce carbon emissions, energy use while saving them money.”
The Coolerado Advantage
The Coolerado system at the Kellogg’s plant uses only 7.1kw during peak power conditions, whereas a traditional system would consume as much as 60kw equating to an energy reduction of 88% and an annual savings of $62,000. Coolerado’s patented heat mass exchange (HMX) design was created by Dr. Valeriy Maisotsenko’s whose discovery of a new thermodynamic cycle (M-Cycle), is the gold standard for modern day air conditioning efficiency. Coolerdo HMX units achieve the highest quality of fresh, cool air while typically using one-tenth the energy of traditional AC units.
