French refrigeration manufacturer CTA Group has found that reversible propane (R290)-based heat pumps – produced by Italian OEM Euroklimat – can cut a Carrefour supermarket’s HVAC energy consumption by around 10% compared to HFC alternatives.

Thanks to lower GWP, lower refrigerant charge and higher system efficiency, the air-to-water Hera heat pump was also found to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, according to Manuel Fernandes, R290 Technical Expert at CTA Group.

Fernandes delivered CTA’s findings during his presentation in a HVAC and heat pumps session at the ATMOsphere (ATMO) Europe Summit on natural refrigerants. The conference took place November 15–16 in Brussels and was organized by ATMOsphere, publisher of Hydrocarbons21.com.
