PepsiCo has announced a pilot project that introduces the first-ever naturally cooled vending machines in the United States. Under the new program, 30 Pepsi-Cola vending machines will be placed in high-consumer traffic areas in the Washington, D.C. area.
The project is part of PepsiCo’s broad commitment to lower its environmental impact by reducing the use of water and energy by 20 percent and the use of fuel by 25 percent by 2015.
PepsiCo today announced a groundbreaking pilot project that introduces the most climate-friendly vending machines ever placed in the United States.
Under the new program, The Pepsi Bottling Group (PBG) is placing 30 Pepsi-Cola vending machines in high-consumer traffic areas in the Washington, D.C. area.
The machines, which feature the new Pepsi logo along with a special green refrigerant sticker, use less energy and generate 12% less greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than current vending machines. In addition to their energy efficiency improvements, the new machines use carbon dioxide (CO2), a natural refrigerant, instead of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).
