green cooling initiative: Best practice example

Training and Education

Promoting the use of hydrocarbons through training and education.

The SIT leads an on-going project that offers rebates for households replacing their old CFC-12 and R134a refrigerators, with new, more energy efficient hydrocarbon refrigerators.


The regular training of technicians from industry and private owned businesses is also part of the SIT's responsibility. The emphasis during the trainings is on good practices in refrigeration and air conditioning, including the safe use and application of natural refrigerants, as well as proper refrigerant recovery and retrofitting.
