Super greenhouse gases in air conditioners
The refrigerants currently used in air conditioners are one of the main causes of the greenhouse effect. These so-called F-gases are super greenhouse gases, because they are hundreds to thousands of times more harmful than CO2. And these super-greenhouse gases are always leaking from the air conditioners. Scientists of Project Drawdown have calculated the negative impact of refrigerants. According to them, no longer releasing these super-greenhouse gases into the atmosphere has the greatest impact of all actions we can take to battle climate change. That is why governments worldwide are making agreements to ban these super greenhouse gases. See for example this information sheet about the Kigali Amendment.
Our ICECUBE uses the harmless and natural refrigerant water for cooling. This way we can end the use of harmful super greenhouse gases in air conditioners.
