Cuba takes steps to analyze and implement new Green Cooling technologies.
A big step was the adoption of the R-290 refrigerant to manufacture chillers. Thanks to the cooperation of Cuba’s Ozone Unit and with the support of an international consultant, the factory FrioClima has received technical assistance for the adoption of low-GWP refrigerants to manufacture chillers and air conditioning units. The aim of this activitiy is to create awareness about the safety of this new equipment.
In order to assess the implementation of Green Cooling technology in Cuba online workshops and a study on possible Thermal Districts were organised. The assessment of an existing production plant and the development of a handbook for the safe use of hydrocarbons as refrigerants are expected to facilitate the national use of natural refrigerants in Cuba.
