The global cooling sector is changing. Developing countries are today in the process of phasing out ozone depleting hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs). They are therefore making decisions about whether to replace HCFCs with hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) or leapfrog to climate-friendly technologies, such as natural refrigerants .
Developed countries, which already rely primarily on HFCs in their refrigeration and air-conditioning sectors, are reducing HFC production and consumption through national, regional and global legislation.
The move away from HFCs is already well underway. By understanding what is available and working well for others you can make the best choice for the future.
