This report summarizes the results from the third phase of a project sponsored by the US Department of Energy (DOE) and the Alternative Fluorocarbons Environmental Acceptability Study (AFEAS). It is a comparative analysis of the global warming impacts of alternative technologies for refrigeration, air conditioning, and appliance insulation that could be commercialized during the phase-out of HCFCs mandated under the Montreal Protocol. Results of the TEWI analysis for refrigeration and air conditioning applications are presented. Extract from the table of contents: technical evaluations : alternative and next generation technologies (engine driven systems; absorption chillers and heat pumps; desiccant dehumidification; advanced vapour compression; evacuated panel insulation); update of the 1991 and 1994 analyses; individual applications; refrigerator-freezers; unitary air conditioning; chillers; commercial refrigeration systems; automobile air conditioners; residential gas heating/cooling options.
