Cooling systems have changed over the years. From the introduction of Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and then the later Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) which were phased out due their highly destructive qualities to people and the ozone. Then the advancement of Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) which provided a much safer cooling system and was far less harmful to the atmosphere. HFC systems are used today to run commercial refrigeration to cool rooms.

HFC cooling, CFC Cooling, Hydrocarbons & CO2 Cooling – The Environment Matters

With a further push to protect the environment technologies are increasingly leading towards Hydrocarbons and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) systems that score extremely well for Global Warming Potential (GWP) and zero Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP). Hydrocarbons are an efficient and a natural refrigerant, a pure propane grade refrigerant called R290. CO2 systems have been around for years and can be found in large refrigeration operations from supermarkets to stadiums. The next main push will be to convert all HFC systems to Hydrocarbon and CO2 systems. Carbon Dioxide (CO2) systems are already widely used across Japan.

Due to the low amount of CO2 gas stored on the unit the danger to people is minimal. Hydrocarbons and CO2 are approximately 10 to 15% more efficient than HFC systems due to the thermodynamic properties, extensive design utilising the latest energy efficient innovations, extensive testing with the manufacturers and academic advisors working to create more environmentally friendly and energy efficient systems.
