Refrigerants are used for the purpose of air conditioning, refrigeration and cooling applications in a wide variety of commercial and domestic settings, as well as in heat pumps, or “reverse cycle” systems.
Refrigerants used in air conditioning and refrigeration have significantly contributed to global warming in addition to ozone depletion. Ozone depleting CFC and HCFC compounds found wide application as refrigerants before the significance of ozone depletion was discovered, and industry has slowly been forced to switch to non-ozone depleting substances. However, many of the HFC and other compounds used to replace the original CFC refrigerants also contribute significantly to the global warming problem.
Our Refrigerants standard includes criteria for a wide range of environmental issues, human health and social impacts, and also ensures the product is fit for purpose.
