La Porte, TX— Gas Innovations, a world-wide supplier of high purity hydrocarbons in the refrigerant, pharmaceutical, industrial, electronics and agricultural chemical industries, has joined the North American Sustainable Refrigeration Council (NASRC) as a silver member. The NASRC is a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to overcoming the hurdles preventing the widespread adoption of natural refrigerants in commercial applications.
“Gas Innovations is committed to providing high purity refrigerant hydrocarbons in a safe and efficient package to the refrigerant industry. Our membership with the NASRC will allow us the opportunity to participate in the development of hydrocarbons as a natural refrigerant.” said Ashley Madray, Executive Vice President of Gas Innovations.
Natural refrigerants, including carbon dioxide, ammonia, and hydrocarbons, are considered “climate-friendly” alternatives to traditional fluorocarbon refrigerants, which have been identified as the fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions globally. Natural refrigerant technologies offer a “future-proof” solution for commercial end-users seeking exemption from increasing refrigeration regulations. Hydrocarbons, which are Gas Innovations’ specialty, also offer guaranteed energy savings for food retailers.
Despite these benefits, natural refrigerants face a unique set of challenges that are preventing their widespread adoption, including upfront and ongoing costs, slow moving codes and standards, and availability of trained service technicians. NASRC is working with stakeholders from the commercial refrigeration industry to address those barriers head on. Gas Innovations offers a unique expertise that will contribute to these efforts.
“We are very excited to welcome Gas Innovations to the NASRC community,” said Danielle Wright, Executive Director of the NASRC. “They will be a key partner in our effort to remove barriers to and accelerate the adoption of hydrocarbon technologies.”
In addition to Gas Innovations, NASRC membership is composed of systems manufacturers, component manufacturers, service technicians, consultants, engineering firms, trade associations, nonprofits, refrigerant distributors, and nearly 14,000 US supermarket locations.
