F-gases harmful to the environment
Conventional refrigerants, such as R404A, R22 and R507A and to a lesser extent R134a, R407 and R410, are harmful to the environment. Fluorocarbon-based gases (F-gases) have a warming effect that is as much as 23,000 times stronger than CO2.
European Legislation on phasing out
European legislation on the phasing out of harmful refrigerants is forcing professionals to search for alternative, sustainable solutions. The phasing out of refrigerants can have major consequences for your cooling technology. Vink recommends the use of alternative sustainable refrigerants as they preserve the environment because they are less harmful to the ozone layer.
Natural refrigerants occur as a substance in nature. They contribute less to the greenhouse efffect because their energetic qualities cause lower CO2 emissions. Natural refrigerants, such as CO2, butane or ammonia, are a good choice when it comes to sustainable and affordable refrigerating solutions.
