Chemours' Opteon XL40 (R454A) low GWP refrigerant has been chosen by Dawsongroup for its range of cold storage solutions for the European market.
The decision follows a successful implementation at Park Cakes, a leading supplier of premium private label cakes and desserts in its new logistics and storage facility in Oldham, UK.
A significant number of European retail professionals who responded to a survey by Emerson said they were unaware of upcoming regulatory changes related to the phase down of HFCs as refrigerants.
The study showed that the retail industry was lagging behind schedule due to a lack of clarity in regulatory changes and replacement technologies available, with 40 per cent of respondents unaware of the changes and nearly half (44 per cent) either yet to make the shift, or unsure. However, 81 per cent of respondents viewed the shift from HFCs to natural refrigerants as a positive change.
