Car air conditioning, Large vehicle air conditioning Product: Environmentally-friendly refrigerant for mobile air-conditioning

Linde operates in 40 countries on 5 continents, strongly supporting the automotive industry in introducing carbon dioxide (R744) as an environmentally-friendly refrigerant in car air conditioning systems.

R744 is a high purity carbon dioxide refrigerant with no Ozone Depletion Potential and minimal Global Warming Potential. A low moisture content of less than 10 ppm means that R744 works more effectively and has a less corrosive impact on your refrigeration system. Moreover, R744 has ideal thermodynamic properties and low energy consumption, making it suitable for a range of applications including industrial heat extraction and commercial refrigeration.

R744 provides customers with a cost-efficient solution that suits a range of requirements while simultaneously preventing environmental damage and meeting environmental regulations.
