The NatRefs Show: Episode 23!

Episode 23 covers hydrocarbon standards, California's rulemaking process for adopting into state regulations the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) rule prohibiting HFCs in stationary refrigeration and air-conditioning end uses, and Stone & Wood brewey's use of NatRefs in Australia.

Brought to you by shecco Media, the NatRefs Show provides a round-up of the most important natural refrigerants news from the websites r744.comammonia21.com and hydrocarbons21.com.

In this podcast we bring you breaking news from the IEC subcommittee SC61C, which recently met in Vladivostok, Russia, to look at revising the recommended hydrocarbon charge limit in commercial refrigeration within the IEC 60335-2-89 standard. According to our sources, the subcommittee decided to move to the next stage in the process.

We also have a report from the University of Birmingham, supported by Emerson, noting the energy efficiency of propane systems for retail refrigeration. From across the pond, we take a look at how the California Air Resources Board (CARB) is looking at beginning a rule-making process to adopt into state regulations the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) rule prohibiting HFCs in stationary refrigeration and air-conditioning end uses.

We also look ahead to the upcoming issue of Accelerate Australia & NZ magazine by previewing the cover story, which focuses on brewer Stone & Wood’s adoption of ammonia.

We'd love to hear your feedback as we improve the show over the coming months. Contact us at journalists@shecco.com. Happy listening!
