Natural Refrigerant Air Conditioning

The trainer ensures that the students are aware of and understand the environmental, spatial and structural implications of using this technology, in comparison the conventional HVAC systems for building design. The trainer further ensures that the students realize that these are already commercially available and implementable technologies, further emphasizing that they are sustainable technologies and not alternative technologies. The trainer also covers the environmental benefits of using this technology as it replaces f-gasses, along with the different safety implications and application constraints.

This focuses on Unitary and Centralized systems, with a special module on R-290 based refrigerant technology. The trainer also highlights the need to leapfrog to natural refrigerants, which is possible. The session also delves into the issues with usage of carbon dioxide as a natural refrigerant and lack of commercial application examples.
