New factsheet – Discover our work on refrigerants!

By 2050, two thirds of the world’s households could have an air conditioner due to the effects of global warming. According to the International Energy Agency, the total number of air conditioners is expected to grow from 1.6 to 5.6 billion globally. The need to switch to climate-friendly refrigerants has never been so great!

Alternative climate-friendly refrigerants can and should be used in place of all F-gases, bringing substantial improvements in the climate performance of heating and cooling systems. This, in turn, would greatly contribute to the mitigation of climate change, one of the main points on ECOS agenda.

What is the problem with refrigerants? How do we work towards fixing it? Find out from our new factsheet!


ECOS is co-funded by the European Commission and EFTA
