    Suppression of global warming is a global issue and countermeasures are being taken for products in various fields. Transport refrigeration units installed in many trucks and trailers that support the controlled temperature transportation infrastructure for perishable foodstuffs, pharmaceuticals and industrial raw materials are also required to play their own roles, while reducing the impact of global warming at the same time. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Thermal Systems, Ltd. (MTH) developed the TDJS/TDS series, direct-driven transport refrigeration units (hereafter "developed product") that use a refrigerant with a low global warming potential (GWP) and realize the reduction of CO2 emissions during operation, in order to contribute to the suppression of global warming in the controlled temperature transportation field. This report presents the developed product.
