Greater consideration of cooling system performance and energy efficiency should be made in the retail sector alongside the drive to make use of lower-GWP refrigerant, the latest RAC Magazine webinar has heard.
This month’s issue considers the cooling industry’s progress in trying to meet the demands of F-Gas regulation and the Montreal Protocol, as well as the major barriers and opportunities ahead.
New bipartisan legislation proposed in the US will attempt to introduce a national phasedown schedule to support the cooling industry to switch to lower GPW products from using HFC refrigerant.
More must be done to simplify the process of supporting companies to switch to lower GWP, lower flammability A2L refrigerant, as has already been seen with other alternative gas products used in cooling, an industry expert has warned.
RAC Magazine will be hosting a free webinar on Thursday 14 November focused on implementing lower flammability A2L HFO refrigerant blends in supermarkets.
A rapid drop in industry reliance for R404A refrigerant seemingly in favour of lower GWP alternatives has shown the effectiveness of EU F-Gas regulation to tackle HFC use. However, experts warn that industry still must address major challenges around energy efficiency and counterfeit trade.
AREA will this week set out its Vision 2025 strategy that will take a medium-term view of key challenges informing the organisation’s work.
Challenges posed by changes to product labelling that will impact refrigerants, as well as upheaval facing the cooling sector due to climate change, will be among key topics at the upcoming BESA National Conference.
Mitsubishi Electric has said that lower flammability R32 refrigerant will remain a vital solution to help industry curb its environmental footprint up until at least the late 2020s. The appeal of the gas as a readily available lower GWP solution could also then be further extended beyond the next decade in a blended form, the manufacturer has claimed.
The August edition of RAC Magazine considers how the cooling sector is facing up to these pressures by looking at new approaches to technology, controls and data-led systems that are coming to market.
