Product: China’s first exporter of natural refrigerants

Subsectors: Commercial Refrigeration, Industrial Refrigeration, Unitary air conditioning

ICOOL, within the Ninhua Group, is the first local company to export natural refrigerants in entire China. In 2012, almost 30000 tons of refrigerants were exported. ICOOL specializes on a range of natural refrigerants including propane (R290), isobutane (R600a) and carbon-dioxide (R744). These are non-ozone depleting, non-corrosive, non-toxic and non-global warming potential alternatives to synthetic refrigerants. Natural refrigerants can be used for a range of applications in both commerical and industrial markets. ICOOL instructs their customers on the correct use and application of natural refrigerants, particularly hydrocarbons. They deliver the clear message that hydrocarbon refrigerants are already in use in many places and that the application of them is not as dangerous as generally believed.
