Conventional heat-pump technology uses synthetic refrigerants that damage the ozone layer (1 kg of standard refrigerant fluid generates as much pollution as 2 tons of CO2), but perform well at low pressure.
While industry and the European Union have galvanized their forces to reduce the environmental impact of these conventional fluids, the impact of their initiatives will only be felt in several decades’ time…
In the meantime, another technology has come to the rescue: CO2! Surprisingly enough, CO2 is a refrigerant fluid that generates 2,000 times less pollution than fluids currently used in heat pumps and 10,000 times less than the fluids found in some fridges! BOOSTHEAT has chosen to develop this technology.
We have found that using CO2 as a fluid (R744 in this case) has allowed us to design extremely robust technologies where the fluid is securely confined, making it more sustainable.
Other advantages underpin our strategic choice, including operation at outside temperatures lower than those catered for by conventional technologies.
Your new heating system therefore wins hands down compared to other known solutions.
