Transitioning to sustainable refrigerants to meet regulations and improve performance

Make the Move to More Sustainable Refrigerant Solutions

A shifting regulatory landscape that focuses on the environmental impact of refrigerants and equipment will have a significant impact on businesses that use or service commercial refrigeration systems.

These businesses will need to transition to more sustainable refrigerants that comply with the more stringent environmental regulations. However, while many environmentally sustainable refrigerant options — especially those based on hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) chemistry — have appeared on the market, choosing the right refrigerant still poses a challenge.

New refrigerants must offer the right performance characteristics and ensure safety. The implementation processes must follow proper procedures to reduce the risk of poor system performance or equipment damage.

This white paper discusses how a strict global legislative landscape has propelled the evolution of refrigerants designed to meet these stringent requirements while still maintaining high performance standards.
