Optimising oil performance in support of today's environmental targets
Following the Montreal Protocol which banned CFCs and HCFCs, and the Kyoto Protocol which sought to establish commitments for the reduction of greenhouse gasses, there has been an increased push towards refrigerants with low ozone depleting potential and low global warming potential.
This has indirectly promoted the use of ammonia and carbon dioxide as refrigerant options once again. As products are being phased out or restricted by quotas, the requirements for oils are also changing to suit the current market.

Refrigerant Reclamation is key to F-Gas Legislation success
A GOOD RECLAMATION STRATEGY CAN EASE THE TRANSITION TO LOW GWP REFRIGERANTS.
The F-Gas Legislation requires recovery of HFCs from refrigeration and air conditioning systems as mandatory and also allows the continued use of reclaimed and recycled refrigerants with a GWP over 2500 for a further 10 years after the service ban on the use of virgin product on 01/01/2020.
