Bluon Energy, the creator of Bluon TdX 20 (R-458A), an energy-efficient replacement refrigerant for existing HVAC-R systems, has welcomed new investors and the addition of a board advisor to bolster its awareness and sales.

The move comes at a time when existing HVAC-R refrigerants used by the majority of the USA and the rest of the world are becoming obsolete due to federal regulation and global phase-outs.

The newly-announced investors include Bionatus LLC, Greg Ellis of Control Air Conditioning Corporation and actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio – who will also serve as a strategic advisor to Bluon’s board of directors.

DiCaprio, along with company leaders and existing board advisors Kelly Givens, David Gordon of Savills Studley and Matthew Case of Bionatus, will work to create awareness around the substantial impact Bluon’s TdX 20 can have in the fight against climate change by making existing HVAC-R equipment more energy efficient.

Founder and chairman of Bluon Energy Peter Capuciati said: “Having high-calibre investors and advisors join us in our growth is extremely exciting. These partnerships are central to helping businesses, facility owners and ultimately home owners everywhere understand the enormous savings and environmental benefit they can achieve with our refrigerant and approach.

He added: “We are also pleased to welcome Leo to our team, as his efforts to make a difference in fighting climate change and bringing awareness to potential solutions are very much in line with our mission.”

Leonardo DiCaprio said: “Electricity generation is a primary driver of carbon emissions, and it is contributing greatly to our planet’s growing climate crisis. We need to work across all sectors of our consumption to ensure the development of energy-efficient products that will help reduce emissions. Bluon is at the forefront of tackling energy efficiency in our existing heating and air conditioning infrastructure which makes their approach an immediate part of the solution.”

In addition to new investors, Bluon is joining the New Energy Opportunities (NEO) Network, a collaborative online platform managed by Schneider Electric that will connect Bluon with commercial and industrial companies actively looking for energy efficiency and sustainability solutions.

“If we can make our existing heating and cooling systems more efficient, then we will drastically reduce the level of global emissions. This is a critical task if we are serious about tackling the underlying cause of climate change,” continued Mr DiCaprio.
