ASHRAE Outlines Commitment to Natural Refrigerants
March 18, 2009

In a new position document, The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) outlines its support for research, assessment and strategic growth in the use of natural refrigerants such as ammonia, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons, air and water in refrigeration systems and technologies. As the industry searches for alternatives that have low global-warming potential, natural refrigerants are gaining increased interest. These refrigerants offer the potential to improve the environmental performance of refrigeration systems, according to ASHRAE. “In light of the current global scenario, ASHRAE’s response to the demand for environmental sustainability is to promote the development of systems that use natural refrigerants, safely, economically and efficiently,” Bill Harrison, ASHRAE president, said.

ASHRAE’s Position Document on Natural Refrigerants can be read at ASHRAE Position Documents online.
