Presentation:

The HVAC&R industry is currently being challenged to invest significant resources to understand the best refrigerants that meet the above requirements. However, there are many uncertainties and challenges given the ever changing global regulatory environment, within regions, country, state, and sometimes locally by city. This presentation will provide a detail discussion of lower GWP alternatives in use and proposed by application type. These applications will include refrigerants for use in various types of chillers, unitary and refrigeration products.

 

This presentation will provide an update on new lower GWP alternatives introduced into the market place and will highlight some important considerations, particularly flammability, that engineers, designers, and building owners should keep in mind regarding next-generation refrigerants.
