Secteur du froid commercial post HCFC22 sur l'île Maurice: HFC ou frigorigènes naturels.

Post HCFC22 commercial refrigeration sector in Mauritius: HFC or natural refrigerants.

Numéro : pap. ID64



The commercial refrigeration sector worldwide has decided to phase out HCFCs, in line with sustainable development. Mauritius has also adhered to this initiative, and in this paper, this Government enterprise is critically examined as a means to address the implications of this phase out and its impact on countries bound by Article 5 of the Montreal Protocol. An initial survey carried out has revealed a significant increase in the number of supermarkets, correlating with an increase in electricity consumption. The emerging use of R-404A as an alternative has also been noted. However, the long term viability of this refrigerant is highly undermined by its high GWP. The discussion revolves around the challenge of finding the most appropriate refrigerant and refrigeration cycle for supermarkets in countries with tropical climates, and the need to adopt a more focused approach to inform that choice if the issue of global warming is to be addressed properly.
