GreenChill Webinar: Clearing the Hurdles - Top 3 Ways NASRC is Removing the Barriers to Low-GWP Refrigerants
11AM-12PM PDT, 2PM-3PM EST
Please join us for a GreenChill webinar on Tuesday, August 7, from 2:00pm to 3:00pm. Since starting up just two years ago, the North American Sustainable Refrigeration Council (NASRC) has quickly mobilized the commercial refrigeration community to directly address the main challenges preventing the widespread adoption of Low-Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerant systems and technologies. Learn more about the primary hurdles and how the NASRC is tackling these barriers together with our members and partners, including:
- Reducing first costs through incentives
- NASRC’s new “matchmaking” service for end-users and service contractors
- Updating standards to create options for retrofit and new alternatives to refrigeration systems
Danielle Wright (NASRC) and Aaron Daly (Whole Foods) will be presenting.

NASRC will be presenting with Nathan Borgford-Parnell (Climate & Clean Air Coalition), Philipp Munzinger (GIZ), and Tristam Coffin (Whole Foods Market), on a Climate Collaborative webinar about Short-Lived Climate Pollutants (SLCPs).
The EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program is holding a stakeholder meeting about commercial refrigeration and stationary air conditioning to allow interested stakeholders to provide input on how the SNAP Program should regulate high GWP HFCs.
The schedule of meetings and topics is available in the table below. The commercial refrigeration workshop will take place at EPA HQ in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, July 17, 2018 at 10 am. The stationary air conditioning workshop will follow directly after that at 1 pm.
To attend, you must RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org, by July 10th and indicate that you are interested in attending the commercial refrigeration workshop, the stationary air conditioning workshop, or both. An RSVP is essential for entry into the building. Plan to arrive an hour early.

Few food retailers have staked their reputation on environmentally friendly practices more than the natural foods industry mainstay, Whole Foods Market. At the heart of the retailer’s sustainability initiatives is their pioneering approach to the use of refrigeration architectures based entirely on ultra-low GWP, natural refrigerants — a strategy that makes them one of the first retailers in the United States to embrace propane (R-290) in their stand-alone display cases.
Emerson's next E360 webinar will give you an opportunity to hear firsthand from Tristam Coffin, director of sustainability and facilities for Whole Foods Market’s northern California region, as he discusses the factors driving the retailer’s natural refrigerant strategy.
Webinar attendees will learn:
- The latest global regulations governing R-290 use
- Drivers behind Whole Foods’ natural refrigerant strategy and R-290 adoption
- An OEM perspective on making R-290 the basis of its stand-alone units
