We can all play a part in reducing our CO2 emissions impact, but did you know that refrigeration management has been suggested as the Number 1 global solution in reducing  CO2-equivalent reductions between 2020 and 2050*?

It’s calculated proper refrigerant management would eliminate 89.70 gigatons of carbon dioxide (compared to business-as-usual), just by implementing the 2016 Kigali Montreal Protocol accord and putting in place smart practices to manage refrigerants that are already available.

Reducing carbon emissions in your refrigeration systems can be done by:

  1. Changing to natural refrigerants that have very low Global Warming Potential.
  2. Putting proactive leak management and refrigerant containment strategies in place – the safest and least costly refrigerant is one that’s in the system.
  3. Putting preventative maintenance programs in place that include the use of energy reduction initiatives.
  4. Ensuring the responsible containment and destruction of refrigerants using initiatives such as Refrigerant Recovery.

And you aren’t just supporting the planet – smart refrigeration management that reduces CO2 emissions also saves on energy and operational costs. Take a look at some of the case studies where using EcoChill has not only been great for the planet.
