Operators of sporting facilities in need of refrigeration are facing new challenges. According to the EU regulation on substances that cause degradation of the ozone layer, as from 2010, only reconditioned HCFCs may be used in refrigerating and air-conditioning systems. This period then ends in 2015. From then on, all HCFCs are prohibited in refrigerating and air-conditioning systems. One possible solution for modernizing the systems consists of natural refrigerants, such as ammonia, carbon diox
