Replacing Fluorinated Gases with Natural Refrigerants May Greatly Benefit the Ozone Layer

Share Article

Birmingham Refrigeration Repair have been monitoring environmental agencies’ reports regarding the effects of fluorinated gases on the environment and have issued their analysis on the benefits of replacing toxic substances with natural refrigerants.

Birmingham Refrigeration Repair have recently issued their observations regarding the environmental agencies’ reports concerning the harmful impact of fluorinated gases on the environment. They have also released an analysis on the current use of natural refrigerants in several commercial refrigeration applications and listed the benefits of switching to ozone-friendly technologies.

The US Environmental Protection Agency has discovered the harmful impact of Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), widely used as refrigerants and solvents, on the ozone layer and the environment. Scientists showed that the destruction of the ozone layer caused by CFCs and other fluorinated gases widely used in commercial refrigeration will allow aggressive UV-radiation to reach the surface of the Earth, causing genetic damage in plants, animals and humans.

Promoting the importance of shifting from fluorinated gases to natural refrigerants, the analysis released by Birmingham Refrigeration Repair highlights several ways commercial owners might benefit from adopting such initiative:

  •     Low environmental impact: natural refrigerants do not pose a threat to the ozone layer and have low impact on the greenhouse effect.
  •     Financial savings: natural refrigerants are inexpensive, and reduce leakage related costs.
  •     Long-term reliability: natural refrigerants are not subject to phase-out controls.

It is estimated that if commercial refrigeration owners nationwide would replace toxic substances with natural refrigerants, the industry would be able to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 22 million metric tons annually. The shift would also help the ozone layer restore and continue to protect the surface of the earth from damaging UV radiation.
