Sustainability initiatives and refrigerant regulations are driving the increased adoption of natural refrigerants. Approved for use across a broad range of applications, CO2 (R-744), propane (R-290) and ammonia (R-717) are among the lowest-global warming potential (GWP) alternatives available. For more than a decade, Emerson has been developing natural refrigerant technologies to help support the transition away from high-GWP hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).                        


This webinar will demonstrate how Emerson is simplifying the adoption of CO2 transcritical booster refrigeration via the seamless integration of key system components and technologies.
