The Ozone Layer wants your Help: Time to Take a Look at your Industrial Refrigeration Systems

Much is apparently transforming in refrigeration at the moment, EU regulations have recently been put in place to minimise the off-gassing of Chlorine towards the ecosystem. Several gases belong to the category of greenhouse gases which result in particles in the Earth’s environment. They are the chemicals which were released for many years, mostly since growth of many of our manufacturing processes, and that are leading to havoc in the higher atmosphere. 
It is currently broadly agreed among all scientists that it must be these chemicals which have been breaking apart the ozone stratum and since we now know, it’s the ozone covering which protects us from the detrimental affect of the sun’s solar emission such as severe global warming. It is therefore urgent that we follow these policies.
Refrigeration on its own is not the culprit, this process is what cools down our food in your own home along with much bigger structures and industrial complexes. Refrigeration devices of whichever capacity are just utilizing the warmth out of the place we wish to stay cool or alternatively, by utilizing refrigerant to be a medium running by way of a closed loop of of piping, can put the trapped heat into a space to heat it. This chemical is a refrigeration chemical substance that has the ability of transforming from gas to fluid or liquid to gas within a certain heat range. This can be the scenario inside a system designed for taking warmth from the surroundings, as in air conditioning devices, or the opposite, heating surroundings, as in heat pumps.
Now it’s no more a matter of moral responsibility that will make people act to change these gases because the European Union have recently put in motion a legal edict that makes anyone making use of or manufacturing these chemical substances to switch them inside their refrigeration systems. The EU have correctly banned the discharge or creation of all chemicals that could cause even more damage to the ozone layer and our climate systems. 
All plant must in the future use an alternative to these chlorofluorocarbons especially those generally known as R11, R12 and R502. Also hydrochloroflourocarbons (HCFC) a lesser damaging choice, often used in the form of R22. Following 1st January 2015 all supplies yet existing in plant or store should be shipped for destruction. Only the slightly less dangerous R22 can be kept in units although not in storage, and it ought not to be replenished. 
There’s still thousands of Kgs of these chemicals being used but it isn’t just necessary but critical that they’re switched for less harmful options before the end of 2014. This can be very costly to do therefore could be among those upgrades not instantly put in place but don’t forget, the person held responsible in law for putting in place these updates or for any circumventing of EC regulations, would be the individuals who own the industrial refrigeration systems containing the chemicals in question.
