Les gaz fluorés dans le transport frigorifique.

F-gases in refrigerated transport.

Numéro : pap. 196



Considering that transport will be included in the F-gas revision for all equipment over 2kg of HFC refrigerant and the environmental impact of refrigerated transport is more and more considered in Europe with Eco-design or, Carbon foot print, the authors have evaluated the quantity of F-gases loaded in refrigerated transport vehicles in France. Even if the current market is dominated by one technology based on vapour-compression systems using R-404A as refrigerant, the article shows that some changes are occurring concerning refrigerant choice. This article highlights the strong influence of Regulation either at a National or European level on refrigerant choice. Refrigeration unit manufacturers are developing alternatives to HFC, those alternatives will be compared in terms of environmental impact, efficiency, and availability on the market. In conclusion the author will evaluate the potential impact of a change of refrigerant in transport in Europe.
