Chilling and global warming.

Réfrigération et réchauffement de la planète.

Type of article: Article, Review


Based on a study performed in 1997 (see IIR Bulletin, ref. 98-0663), this article summarizes options and consequences. The goal of decreasing the impact of refrigeration and air conditioning on global warming by 60% can be achieved in 2010 in the European Union. This reduction goal can be achieved by implementing widespread use of HFCs in suitable contexts. If correctly designed and maintained, systems using ammonia, hydrocarbons or HFCs have very similar impacts on global warming.
