Why choose natural refrigerants?
Natural refrigerants have been in the spotlight with the gradual phase out of many common synthetic refrigerants since the release of the Montreal Protocol in 1987.
More recently, hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) have been identified globally as the fastest growing source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Considering this statistic, refrigerant management has been identified as a top priority for climate solutions.

Below are the top 6 reasons why natural refrigerants are a smart decision when choosing your next industrial refrigeration system. Whether your refrigeration system is for food processing, cold storage, ice rinks, or anything in between, CO2 and ammonia are viable as natural refrigerant options.
