JORDAO INNOVCOOL® has launched the CORK CORE® thermal insulation solution, as part of its efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of the company's commercial refrigeration range.
CORK CORE® offers an innovative, eco-friendly solution made from 100% natural cork.
Cork is a natural, renewable raw material from cork oak forests – a natural Portuguese ecosystem with an outstanding environmental value that absorbs more than 14 million tonnes of CO2 per year.
The material, known for its unique natural properties, finds use in a wide range of applications in the construction, wine, aerospace and fashion industries, as well as household items.
Joana Lobo, R&D director at JORDAO, said, "The innovative cork agglomerate insulation replaces the injected polyurethane (PU) solution, traditionally used for thermal insulation and mechanical sturdiness, offering significant environmental advantages and delivering the best performance.
"The production of cork, unlike polyurethane, is carbon negative and removes more CO2 from the atmosphere than it emits."
"By using JORDAO's models with CORK CORE®, hospitality and food retail players can reduce their carbon footprint, reinforce their eco-values among consumers and contribute positively towards a significant cause – our planet," she added.
CORK CORE® Thermal Insulation Driven by Nature is a partnership between JORDAO INNOVCOOL® and GRÕWANCORK - Easy Insulation Cork Solutions.
JORDAO designs and produces customised refrigeration equipment ideal for small, medium and large size stores.
It also manufactures customised equipment for supermarkets as well as the private and public hospitality sectors.
In 2019, the company launched JORDAO INNOVCOOL® to ideate and create selling points of the future.
The company has created innovative display and storage units for well-known companies such as 7 Eleven, Auchan, Casino, Costa Coffee, E. Leclerc, Godiva Chocolatier, Jerónimo Martins, Sodexo, Sonae MC and Starbucks.
