A need for improvements over the containment and recycling of refrigerant and better scrutiny of F-Gas regulation are among the key themes of our latest magazine
The June edition of RAC Magazine offers a detailed look at our recent roundtable event focused on how the commercial refrigeration supply chain is adapting to adopting lower-GWP refrigerant and how key barriers linked to training and safety standards can be overcome.
Key conclusions from the event, which was sponsored by Chemours, noted that a number of major retailers did have strategies in place to switch away from increasingly expensive higher-GWP products. However, the expert panel argued that smaller businesses such as convenience retailers were lacking guidance on options available to them.
The magazine also looks at initial feedback from this year’s annual RAC F-Gas Question Time event that took place on May 17 and saw a broad consensus among industry on the need to ensure a less wasteful approach to R410A that was going to waste in systems.
We also have a range of features that includes a look at the world’s biggest installation of evaporative cooling units in Saudi Arabia and how new business models such as a ‘cold as a service’ approach may ensure more environmentally friendly refrigeration in key areas such as agriculture.
