Cooltherm has experience of delivering cooling and heat pump-based projects using the latest generation of low Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerants, such as HFOs and propane.
We can help you replace equipment based on traditional high GWP refrigerants, to ensure compliance with the new F-Gas Regulation. It will also help reduce your company’s carbon footprint, and support corporate environmental and CSR policies.
Under the new F-Gas framework, over the next decade there will be a gradual phase-down in the use of high GWP HFC refrigerants, such as R404A. Alongside, we will see a phase-in of more environmentally friendly alternatives, such as HFO1234ze and the hydrocarbon propane.
These alternatives are available now, and effectively enable you to future-proof your business from the impact of this legislation. As high GWP refrigerants are phased-down, supplies will be reduced and costs are likely to increase significantly. This is an important consideration when making investment decisions about new cooling plant.
We can help you evaluate the options, and advise on the best solution to meet your needs – taking into account your technical, economic and environmental requirements.
Our experienced team offers a full consultancy and turnkey service, to ensure your project is delivered on time and within budget.
R22 was once commonly used as a refrigerant in air conditioning. However, it has all but disappeared from use as a result of its high ozone depletion potential. If your equipment is still based on R22, we can help and advise on the best solution – whether that is retrofit or replacement with a more modern, efficient system.
