Refrigerants with a tradition and a future
Natural refrigerants have a long tradition – especially in food production and storage, where they have been in use for over 130 years. In more recent times, new fields of application have been added, e.g. in the sports and recreation sectors. Technological evolution and innovations have helped to establish natural refrigerants as an economical, safe solution for applications in numerous areas. Because of their ecological sustainability, these refrigeration systems can be recommended as future-oriented technical solutions.
The natural refrigerants ammonia and carbon dioxide, with hydrocarbons such as propane, propene and iso-butane, are well proven and economically significant.
