Polish supermarket chain saves over 20% energy and moves to low GWP refrigerants
The HFC phase-down according to the EU F-Gas Regulation aims to reduce the consumption of HFCs by limiting the quantity of CO2-equivalents that can be placed on the European market. The higher the global warming potential (GWP) of a refrigerant, the more it will be impacted by the HFC phase-down since CO2 equivalents are calculated by multiplying the GWP of the refrigerant with its metric quantity. In addition to the phase-down, the use of refrigerants with a GWP above 2500 has been forbidden since 2020 in new stationary refrigeration equipment. For supermarkets, it is therefore important to switch to alternatives with a lower GWP while ensuring energy efficiency as refrigeration accounts for more than half of the energy consumed by supermarkets.
