shecco has released the second part of its three-part “World Guide to Low-Charge Ammonia,”a free report that aims to investigate underlying trends for low-charge ammonia technology in different parts of the world.
Part one of the guide was released on August 14 of this year and focused on some of the key characteristics of ammonia as a refrigerant, outlining the ongoing efforts to define the term “low-charge ammonia.”
This second part of the “Guide to Low-Charge Ammonia” is divided into two chapters. The first provides an overview of a variety of applications where low-charge ammonia technology is already in use today, with HVAC&R case studies from around the world.
The second chapter highlights some of the key global regulations and standards governing the use of ammonia as a refrigerant. “Policy is traditionally among the most important drivers when it comes to shifting to new technologies and it is no different for low-charge ammonia systems,” explained Klara Zolcer Skačanová, Market Development manager for shecco, publisher of this website.
The third and final part of the report will zoom in on the key trends for low-charge ammonia technology, looking at its advantages, drivers and major challenges in today’s market. It will compare developments in different world regions, with focus on North America, Europe, Japan and Australia. It is due for publication by the end of 2019.
