The European Union requires the food industry to phase out F-gasses by 2030 and switch to natural refrigerants. To what extent is your machinery ready for the near future? What can we do to help you get there?
The GWP (Globel Warming Potential) value indicates the extent to which a refrigerant contributes to the greenhouse effect. In other words: the higher the value, the greater the risk that a refrigerant negatively impacts our climate. Natural refrigerants degrade quickly, therefore the GWP value is 1. For other gases, it depends on the gas and the time frame the refrigerant is applied in the freezing/cooling process. The most commonly used gas R404A, for example, has a GWP value of 3922.
In short, the true question is not whether we need to change our way of working, but when. At KOMA, we strive for a sustainable future by promoting natural refrigerants. With our extensive knowledge of natural refrigerants, we are happy to help you find the solution for a future-proof installation.
