Cereal maker Kellogg’s achieved a substantial amount of energy savings at its Mexicali, Mexico, food-processing plant, thanks to Denver-based Coolerado.

Powered by Coolerado’s HMX cooling technology, Kellogg’s plant has experienced an annual savings of $62,000. Officials say the Coolerado system also reduces Kellogg’s carbon footprint, emitting only 27.37 tons of carbon dioxide per year, compared with 231.41 tons of carbon dioxide that would be emitted from traditional air conditioners.

“At Kellogg’s, we take our environmental commitments very seriously and we are very pleased that Coolerado’s HMX-powered air conditioners help us achieve those green goals,” said Pedro Palacios, plant manager for Kellogg’s. “It’s not just about the bottom line and maximizing revenue here at Kellogg’s. We are very proud of our GoGreen team and initiatives and we look forward to continuing to partner with Coolerado for years to come.”

Coolerado CEO Tom Teynor said the company was up to the challenge of installing the energy-efficient cooling system in Mexico’s dry weather conditions. 

 “Coolerado has always been up to the task and we thrive and exceed when given challenges like the extreme dry temperatures that Kellogg’s faces in Mexico,” Teynor said. “We truly respect and admire Kellogg’s environmental conscience and it feels great to help them reduce carbon emissions, energy use while saving them money.”
