The project, "Demonstration and Pilot Activities for Encouraging Low Global Warming Potential (GWP) Refrigerants in the Republic of Turkey", which was signed between United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and Refrigeration Industry Businessmen Association (SOSİAD) and carried out within the framework of UNIDO's project protocol no. 120632, aims to raise awareness about the use of refrigerants with low KIP (global warming potential). In addition to performing energy measurement and analysis of the existing systems in five pilot plants, the refrigerant used was changed with environmentally friendly alternatives.
A preliminary assessment of the existing systems in terms of energy efficiency has been made and the project aims to monitor and report the operational parameters of the completed facilities. Remote monitoring and next generation electronic control applications and the results of the operation after transformation with alternative refrigerants other than HCFC will be shared with the public.
The monitored and analyzed data will be made available on different platforms for refrigeration suppliers, end users and other interested parties.
