The advantages of low-GWP HFCs, HFOs and blends are not limited to retrofits. New installations powered by these refrigerants – collectively known as Advanced Climate Technologies (ACTs) – help businesses reduce environmental impacts and operating costs.
Read an excerpt from our op-ed in ACHR News below.
“Total Equivalent Warming Impact (TEWI) and Life Cycle Climate Performance (LCCP) are well-established metrics that help operators gauge the total environmental impact of their system — both direct or “scope one” emissions (leaks) and indirect or “scope two” emissions (energy consumption).
Historically, indirect emissions vary between 60% and 90% of total system emissions. Systems that run on ACTs consume less energy, resulting in lower total emissions.”
