Toshiba says its R32-based systems have 80% less total equivalent CO2 impact
Toshiba Air Conditioning has published new information on its latest R32 refrigerant-based Mirai, Shorai and Daiseikai residential air conditioning systems, as well as the full range of Digital Inverter and Super Digital Inverter light commercial split system range. 

Publication of the brochures follows the company’s move to R32 refrigerant, and set out the benefits for end users and the environment. 
David Dunn, managing director of Toshiba Air Conditioning in the UK, said: “Customers may be aware of the significantly lower Global Warming Potential (GWP) of R32 compared with outgoing R410A. However, it is not widely appreciated that the technology employed by Toshiba means our systems have a 30% lower refrigerant charge. In the case of R32 systems, the combined effect of lower inherent GWP and reduced charge results in an 80% reduction in total equivalent kilograms of carbon dioxide for Toshiba air conditioners.

“This represents a huge step forward in reducing environmental impact. If replicated across the industry, it would transform the ACR sector’s combined carbon footprint.”
