Awarded Refrigerants Strategy

Carrier Transicold is proposing the new R-452A refrigerant as an alternative to R-404A currently in use. R-452A offers the same level of refrigeration performance, the same fuel efficiency, reliability and refrigerant charge as R-404A, with a 45 per cent lower Global Warming Potential (GWP).

Last year, Carrier Transicold announced its commitment to pursue the commercialization of HFC-free refrigerants in road transportation refrigeration by 2020, building upon its expertise with CO2, which is also known as R-744. This breakthrough technology uses recycled CO2 and repurposes it as a refrigerant. It is non-flammable, non-ozone depleting and has a GWP of 1.
