The situation faced by the refrigeration / air conditioning industry has become increasingly severe, because
•CFCs: abolished in 1995 in developed countries
•HCFCs: must be reduced to practically zero by 2020
•Must reduce greenhouse gas emissions according to COP3
→What should we do to minimize CO2emissions?
One solution is to develop high-efficiency AC equipment using HFCs
In this presentation, examples of high-efficiency technology
used in small and medium-sized air conditioning equipment
and lessons for changeover to HFC refrigerants will be shown
