Natural refrigerants are agents that do not deplete the ozone layer and have very low or no global warming potential (GWP).
These refrigerants are used in refrigeration technology as an alternative to ozone-depleting chlorinated refrigerants (HCFC) and refrigerants with a high global warming potential (HFCs).
Natural refrigerants have their own specific field of application and provide excellent energetic performance of refrigeration installations when used properly.
Ammonia has been widely used as a refrigerant for more than a hundred years. Worldwide experience has been built up with how we should handle ammonia safely. This starts with the design of the installation, the choice of coolant, the technical implementation and the quality checks.
It is a whole security chain. Ammonia refrigeration technology is superior and energy efficient in almost every application.
The non-combustible CO₂ is an attractive alternative, but by no means for all applications.
