Does not add to the greenhouse effect
Synthetic refrigerants have a major impact on the greenhouse effect. By replacing them with natural refrigerants, you’re doing the world a great service.
Approved by the EU
>Under the F-gas regulation, the EU will phase out refrigerants with high environmental impact. In the future, natural refrigerants will be the only remaining option.
Many are making the change
Many have already discovered the benefits of natural refrigerants. Consumers want to see greener options, and by making the change right now, your company will be a trailblazer.
We need to act now
The GWP value is usually measured over 100 years. But if we are to become climate neutral by 2050, we must measure over 20 years. Unfortunately, we do not have 100 years on us, and the transition to natural refrigerants now needs to occur. The table shows a significant difference between measurement over 100 years and measurement over 20 years.
Here is a complete version of the list of genuine GWPs where you can read more about what it means.

Want to learn more about natural refrigerants?
Our free training course provides a better understanding of the regulations that apply to the design and installation of cooling and heating plants that use natural refrigerants.
Is propane safe?
Propane has long had a reputation as a fire hazard. But with safe handling, our extensive experience and the modern units we use today, it’s a safe alternative.
Are they difficult to install?
Enrad modules are designed to fit new and old plants alike. Installation is therefore quick and easy with simple component replacement.
Do I have to use natural refrigerants?
The EU is currently phasing out F-gases completely as they’ve been shown to have a major impact on the climate. In a few years, natural refrigerants will be the only option.
Are they expensive?
While natural refrigerants cost a little more than F-gases, the units are energy efficient and built for long life, so things even out in the end.
What natural refrigerants are there?
Natural refrigerants include propane, CO2 and ammonia, where propane has the lowest true GWP value. We use propane and propylene to ensure the best properties in the -8 to +60 temperature range.
What is the F-gas regulation?
It is an EU regulation that governs various greenhouse gases. It will have a major impact on our industry as F-gases are widely used in refrigeration and heat pump units.
Want to know more about the F-gas regulation?
The Swedish Refrigeration & Heat Pump Association has taken the initiative to create a website where it describes everything you need to know about the F-gas regulation.
“As the total amount of CO2 equivalents in sold F-gases is reduced, an increasing number of refrigerants with high GWP values relative to the annual average will be affected. Initially, there will be price increases followed in all likelihood by shortages.”
Are you ready to cross the threshold to a climate-neutral society?
Then we’d love to hear from you! It’s natural to have a few questions when replacing something you’re used to with something new. But we’re here to answer all your questions, whether they’re about our products or natural refrigerants in general.
