The cooling sector (Refrigerators and air conditioners: RAC), is now indispensable to our daily lives. Appropriate management of fluorocarbon is the key to prevent the release of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and ozone-depleting substances (ODS) to the atmosphere.

Promoting countermeasures for global environmental protection in the cooling sector is important to realize sustainable development and so-called virtuous cycle of economy and environment.

During the second webinar, short video clips were presented that introduced some of Japan’s technology for life cycle management of fluorocarbons as some of the measures to address the issues. Please check the below video links for your reference.

Video 1: High-efficiency non-fluorocarbons refrigeration appliances

Introducing high efficiency non-fluorocarbons refrigeration appliances is an effective technological option in the cooling sector as a countermeasure to releasing GHGs and ODS.
In this video, technology information on high-efficiency non-fluorocarbons refrigeration is explained, with case studies of actual private sector’s business operation. It also includes interviews with technology suppliers and users.

Video 2: Recovery and reclamation of refrigerants

Appropriate recovery and reclamation of refrigerants is an effective technological option in the cooling sector as a countermeasure to releasing GHGs and ODS.
In this video, technology information on appropriate recovery and reclamation of refrigerants is presented, with case studies of actual private sector’s business operation. It also includes interviews with technology suppliers.

Video 3: Refrigerants leakage detection system

Preventing fluorocarbons leakage into the atmosphere is one of the effective technological options in the cooling sector as a countermeasure to releasing GHGs and ODS.
In this video, technology information on fluorocarbons leakage detection system, utilizing IoT is presented, with case studies of actual private sector’s business operation. It also includes interviews with technology suppliers.
