With the help of our members and partners, NASRC progress groups are actively addressing the hurdles that are slowing the progress of natural refrigerants. Each NASRC progress group is committed to taking action on a specific hurdle.
- Recently, we had the opportunity to provide feedback on IIAR's low-charge ammonia guidance (ARM-LC) and give comment on a draft of the IIAR CO2 Safety Standard. Thank you to our members for your contributions.
- We are calling for the supermarket industry to voice their support for faster action on codes and standards. Take action to support low-GWP refrigerants by signing the NASRC petition. Remember you can sign both as an individual and on behalf of an organization, forward it on to others!
- The group has been exploring options to develop a broadly-accepted modeling tool to accurately estimate and validate the energy savings of any refrigeration system, include those using natural refrigerants.
- Join our next meeting to hear from guest presenters including the DOE Better Buildings Alliance this month and the American Carbon Registry in May!
- We have been working with the Refrigerating Engineers & Technicians Association (RETA) to develop a comprehensive CO2 handbook for technicians. The handbook should be completed and available for use later this year.
- At the end of 2017, the group launched the NASRC Natural Refrigerant Service Network, a FREE TOOL to connect end users with contractors trained in natural refrigerant-based systems and equipment.
