Ammonia: The science

June 16, 2023
Science is rooting for natural refrigerants. Professor in Refrigeration and Environmental Technologies, Michael Kauffeld, has the facts, stats and numbers to back it up – ammonia is the best refrigerant: “You can go back to this investigation from The National Institute of Standards and Technology* where they compared 60 million different chemicals. The number one fluid was ammonia. […] Ammonia is the best choice and there will not be any other game-changer”. Ammonia has a global warming potential of zero, a very high efficiency, lower production footprint and an ammonia facility can produce a ROI within 1-2 years.
