TINGLEV, Denmark, Oct. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - An advanced insulation foam and
ingenious ways to transport fresh food have helped make Maersk
Container Industry a finalist in two competition categories, CSR and
innovation, at this year's Containerization International Awards.
"It's an honour for MCI's research and development teams to be finalists
for two prizes when we know how many good projects and companies are

MCI competes for the "Technological Innovation of the Year" prize in
recognition of its automatic ventilation, AV+, which saves energy by
controlling fresh air ventilation inside refrigerated containers. An
affiliated technology, controlled atmosphere (CA), keeps track of how
fruits and vegetables ripen and respire inside the container during
transport. CA improves storage life and extends shipment time of
bananas from 20 to 45 days, which over the past four years has enabled
banana producers to open up new markets.
MCI has also been selected as finalist for the "Corporate Social
Responsibility" prize. MCI works with the United Nation's SAVE FOOD
initiative to prevent global food waste, and MCI's insulation foam,
SuPoTec®, is complimented by the World Wildlife Fund, WWF, for being
ahead of European Union legislation aimed at protecting the climate and
Earth's ozone layer.
Containerization International, the international transport publication,
holds its annual award competition 24 October in London in honour of
companies that help make container production, container shipping and
container terminals safer, greener and more secure.
