THE STORY OF NATURAL REFRIGERANTS
CO2 and NH3 are the gold standard for ozone depletion potential (ODP) and global warming potential (GWP). Neither are ozone depleting (0). CO2 has a GWP of 1—which is because it is used as the baseline for that scale—and NH3 has a GWP of 0.
CO2 is nonflammable and nontoxic, and it is a low-cost refrigerant. The recent advent of high-pressure, iron-impregnated copper has allowed the traditionally stainless-steel piping to transition to familiar brazed copper piping, further improving value and simplifying repairs.
NH3 is energy- efficient and cost-effective and used in Industrial applications.
Benefits of Natural Refrigeration Solutions
Reduced Environmental Impact
Natural refrigerants have minimal GWPs and no ODP, resulting in significantly lower contributions to global warming and ozone depletion. By adopting these solutions, businesses and industries can play a crucial role in combating climate change and protecting the planet for future generations.
Many countries are phasing out the use of high-GWP synthetic refrigerants, and stricter environmental regulations are being enforced. Embracing natural refrigeration solutions ensures compliance with these evolving regulations, avoiding penalties and legal complications.
Natural refrigerants often exhibit superior thermodynamic properties, resulting in enhanced energy efficiency and lower operating costs for refrigeration systems. This not only benefits the environment but also provides businesses with cost savings in the long run.
Improved Reputation and Consumer Appeal
As environmental consciousness grows among consumers, businesses that adopt sustainable practices, including natural refrigeration solutions, gain a competitive edge and attract eco-conscious consumers.
