PLANNERS of refrigeration systems can contact Eurammon for answers regarding the planning, approval and operation of systems that use natural refrigerants.
'System operators should use the opportunity posed by the 2010 phaseout of HCFCs to change over to natural refrigerants such as ammonia, carbon dioxide or hydrocarbons', said Monika Witt, chairwoman of Eurammon, the European initiative for natural refrigerants.
'Even though systems with natural refrigerants may entail higher initial investment, when viewed over the entire life cycle the costs are lower than in systems that use synthetic refrigerants. In the next few years, the refrigeration industry will come under increasing pressure from the political sector and from the general public to develop refrigerants with the lowest possible global warming potential that can be used safely'.
Eurammon, is a collaboration of European organisations and individuals which advocate the increased use of natural refrigerants. Users and designers of refrigeration projects can contact Eurammon for specific project experience and advice on planning, licensing and operating refrigeration plants by emailing HCFCemail@example.com
