Low GWP refrigerant presentations now online

AREP2016USA: The presentations delivered at the recent sell-out AHRI-hosted conference on the Low GWP Alternative Refrigerants Evaluation Programme (AREP) are now available online.

More than 170 leading refrigerant researchers, refrigerant producers, and manufacturers attended the conference, which was held in January, prior to the ASHRAE Winter Conference in Orlando.

The programme began in 2011 as an industry-wide cooperative research initiative in response to environmental concerns raised by high-GWP refrigerants. It sought to identify promising low-GWP alternative refrigerants for major product categories including air conditioners, heat pumps and heat pump water heaters, dehumidifiers, chillers, ice makers and refrigeration equipment.

This, phase II of the project, was begun in January 2014 to focus on refrigerants in high-ambient conditions and others not tested in the first phase of the programme.

The presentations can be viewed here.
