Debunking Myths on the Use of CO2 as a Refrigerant

In the mid-19th century, carbon dioxide was being used as a reliable and efficient refrigerant. However, with the introduction and wide use of synthetic refrigerants, such as HFCs and CFCs, the utilization of CO2 in industrial and commercial refrigeration decreased. Today, new refrigeration regulations are in place with the goal to reduce the use of harmful refrigerants. As a result, the adoption of natural alternatives is rising. According to sheccoBASE, the research arm of shecco, there have been 650 installations of transcritical CO2 in the US as of October 2020 with Europe leading the world in transcritical CO2 adoption with 29,000

Is CO2 Giving Ammonia a Run for Its Money in the World of Industrial Refrigeration?

Since the early 1900s, ammonia has long been used as a major refrigerant in industrial refrigeration. Due to its thermodynamic properties, ammonia (NH3, R717) is used as a common refrigerant for large-scale, industrial applications and considered as a foundation for food processing and cold storage. As the use of natural refrigerants evolves, and through the advancement of technology in the refrigeration industry, several countries and multi-national companies are now seeing the great potential of CO2 as a refrigerant in industrial refrigeration. CO2 systems have been traditionally designed for commercial refrigeration applications; however, here are some of the reasons why CO2
