Reducing the climate impact of refrigerants by up to 90% in commercial refrigeration
As of 2020, high Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerants such as HFC R-404A will be banned under the EU F-Gas Regulation in new stationary refrigeration equipment. In addition, high GWP HFCs are increasingly under pressure as a result of the HFC phase-down. However, GWP is not the only criterion to take into account. Indirect emissions associated with energy use play a crucial role as they represent on average at least 70% of the total emissions of refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. It is therefore important to consider both, GWP and energy efficiency when making refrigerant choices. In addition, safety, installation and maintenance need to be part of the equation.
