F-Gases Are the Future of Cooling
A GROWING WORLD NEEDS RELIABLE & SUSTAINABLE COOLING TECHNOLOGIES. ONLY LOW GWP F-GASES DELIVER.
Solving the climate crisis demands continuous innovation. We can’t afford to move backward. We can’t rely on yesterday’s solutions to meet tomorrow’s challenges.
That’s why the world needs F-gases. Only today’s low global warming potential (GWP) F-gases and specialty fluids (HFOs and HFO blends) offer a reliable and sustainable path forward for cooling—without the hazards and shortcomings of outmoded industrial gases like ammonia, CO₂, and propane.
The Truth About “Naturals”
So-called “natural” refrigerants like ammonia, CO₂, and propane are not new, natural, universal, or risk-free. These industrial gases were first adopted more than a century ago and then broadly abandoned for good reason. They pose real risks—from high working pressures and corrosion to flammability—and their performance limitations will only increase society’s dependence on fossil fuels.
A Better Way Forward
Low GWP F-gases and specialty fluids (HFOs and HFO blends) offer excellent performance and an improved environmental profile versus yesterday’s cooling technologies. They are superior to “natural” alternatives based on these criteria:
