In shecco’s newly launched GUIDE to Natural Refrigerants in China – State of the Industry 2015 – presented in cooperation with the Chinese Association of Refrigeration, provided an exclusive analysis of the market, from the largest ever Chinese industry survey on natural refrigerants, primary market data and interviews with more than 20 policy and industry experts. The report concludes that there is a much larger role for hydrocarbon refrigerants to play in applications such as
“In our rollout of hydrocarbon-based equipment, we no longer see any barriers to the use of natural refrigerants in China.”
“Hydrocarbons still have a dominant position in domestic fridges and its application in small volume RAC is ready to be promoted on the market. Already, key technical standards and related regulations have been developed and are ready for the market.”
“I’m convinced that hydrocarbons will become the main refrigerant for light commercial refrigeration in China by 2020. Between all the options we have considered, we believe that propane (R290) will be selected as the main refrigerant. We can already see an important number of manufacturers going in this direction i.e. developing new projects using hydrocarbons to replace HFCs and HCFCs.”
