REFRIGERANTS

Overview

Refrigerants are gases we use to keep things cool. They are inside fridges, freezers and A/C units, and most are incredibly harmful global warming gases if released into the atmosphere ; thousands of times more potent than CO2 . The main type of refrigerant today,  hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), is the fastest growing source of   greenhouse gases. Preventing refrigerant pollution by controlling leaks and switching to more climate friendly alternatives is one of the top solutions to global warming!
