In this episode, we are joined by Emerson’s Dr. Rajan Rajendran who is the V.P. of Systems Innovation Center and Sustainability. Today we answer the question, “Why are HFC’s not a good permanent solution?” We also discuss the greenhouse effects and how ozone-depleting gasses such as HFC’s are related to this. In addition, we explore the proliferation of refrigeration around the globe and the Kigali phase down and how it works.
