Solstice® 1234ze is a low GWP, energy-efficient alternative to traditional refrigerants for air-cooled and water-cooled chillers in a range of applications and have already been used in supermarkets and commercial buildings.
Efficiency of Solstice® ze is comparable to R-134a. Solstice® 1234ze has a GWP of <1. It has low toxicity and is non-flammable at ambient temperature.
The use of Solstice® ze in new equipment is cost-effective and fast because only minor system adaption is required to achieve results similar to medium-pressure refrigerants like R-134a. It is significantly safer in use than other very low GWP alternatives which are either extremely flammable or toxic.
(GWP values are those stated according to the 5th IPCC Assessment Report on Climate Change.)
