Case Study: Replacing HFCs with HFOs in Commercial Refrigeration

Reduce the total emissions of your refrigeration system beyond CO₂ and hydrocarbons

Selecting low GWP HFO refrigerants like Opteon™ XL significantly reduces the total emissions of your refrigeration system.

A low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant alone isn’t enough to reduce the environmental impact of your refrigeration system. Indirect emissions from energy consumption are a far greater contributor, so energy efficiency must be considered when selecting a low GWP commercial refrigerant.

A study conducted by independent consultants at Wave Refrigeration shows that hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) refrigerants, like Opteon™ XL, provide equal cooling performance with lower total emissions than other low GWP solutions like carbon dioxide (CO₂) and hydrocarbons.

We’ve put together a useful infographic that provides a comparative snapshot of the study results around refrigerant emissions output to help you make an informed decision.
