Because of their energy consumption and of possible emissions of the refrigerant, the potential climate impact of refrigeration is an important issue. For many years all the players of the industrial chain have collaborated to bring solution through technical innovation and better practices.
Refrigeration is also one of the topics discussed during the Workshops held by EFCTC on the responsible use of HFCs.
Nearly all current applications practice refrigeration by vapor compression technology but the diversity of applications and conditions has required unique optimization efforts over decades. The following links provide simple explanations.
