Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

A freshness preservation reefer container “Hyokan Soko” forms static electric field with high voltage and low current in the chilled container, and enables long storage of foodstuff.
Introduction of freshness preservation reefer containers enables to transport foodstuff by sea route that needs long storage, and leads to realize CO2 emission reduction by modal shift from trucks to cargo ships.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions


Reference Emission – Project Emission

  • Reference Emission = Emission from land transport fuel consumption
  • Project Emission = Emission from sea transport fuel consumption + Emission from land transport fuel consumption    (between the distribution base and the port) + Emission from container electricity consumption

+ Emission from cargo loading/unloading at the port
