What is Greenfreeze?



  1. 0 Votes

         Greenfreeze is a campaign by Greenpeace to eliminate the use of F-gases in the refrigeration and cooling industries. F-gases are industrial greenhouse gasses including hydroflourocarbons (HFCs), and hydrochloroflourocarbons (HCFCs) which were introduced in 1992 as a more environmentally friendly alternative to CFCs like freon. However, far from being environmentally friendly, F-gases are a potent greenhouse gas and were responsible for 17% of man-made climate change in 2005.

         Through Greenfreeze, Greenpeace hopes to convert the world refrigeration industry to natural coolants. So far, 300 million refrigerators using natural coolants have been sold in Europe, South America, and Asia. In the United States, Greenpeace has worked with Ben & Jerry’s and PepsiCo to change their refrigeration practices. GE has plans to make refrigerators using natural coolants, but it is unclear when these will be available to consumers.
