Remplacement des refroidisseurs au R22 du Parlement de Canberra.

L'Australie s'est engagée à éliminer presque complétement le R22 d'ici 2016.
A “building condition assessment report” conducted by GHD found significant problems at federal parliament in Canberra, Australia.

Opened by the Queen twenty-five years ago to mark Australia’s bicentenary, the building requires large investment to ensure it complies with standards. One of the priorities is to replace ageing chillers still using R22, an HCFC which contributes to the depletion of the ozone layer. Australia is committed to drastically phasing out HCFCs as from 2016.

A series of projects over the next 25 years has been identified, and GHD has estimated the cost could reach up to AUD 600 million dollars.
