Like other leading names in the world of commercial refrigeration, Arneg conforms to the European Ecodesign and Energy Labelling regulation that came into force in the Spring of 2021.
But simply applying the latest standards is not enough. We are also committed to helping partners, customers and end users to acquire a better understanding of the rules and product information.
This is one of the reasons why we are active in the “RDC Refrigerated Display Cabinets” Working Group of Eurovent, the European industry association for indoor climate, process cooling and food cold chain technologies.
European Ecodesign Regulation 2019/2024 establishes energy efficiency limits for commercial refrigeration equipment with a view to eliminating less efficient products and promoting the durability and recyclability of materials. All refrigerated displays on the market must now conform to specific values, as defined by the EEI Energy Efficiency Index.
Ecodesign: energy efficiency limits
from 1 March 2021
EEI ≤ 80 for ice-cream freezers
EEI ≤ 100 for other refrigerated cabinets
The performance and consumption of a new product must be properly documented before it can be sold. On top of this, certain conditions must be guaranteed in order to extend its useful life and promote a more circular economy.
