  • Green Cooling for a Warming World, English / Thai subtitles

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday, February 9, 2015
    Objective: 

    This movie explains the link between cooling, climate change and sustainable development! It begins with the introduction of a cold chain, which plays a crucial part for food safety: Currently, up to 40 % of all foodstuffs go to waste due to a lack of proper cold storage. The second part of the movie portrays refrigeration and air-conditioning as part of our little "Green Cooling- family", who discovers various uses of cooling in their life and learns about its effects on the world's climate.

  • Guía de reconversión de la producción de refrigeradores domésticos: de refrigerantes halogenados a refrigerantes de hidrocarburo

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, May 1, 2014
    Objective: 

    Un proyecto de reconversión de equipos de refrigeración domésticos a hidrocarburos se puede segmentar en cinco áreas clave: producción de equipos, que involucra la instalación, el mantenimiento y la seguridad; producto que incluye rediseños y pruebas del refrigerador; procesos, en términos de capacitación y seguridad del operador; asistencia técnica del producto y capacitación técnica; marketing y educación a los clientes.

  • Guidelines for the safe use of flammable blowing agents in the production of extruded polystyrene boards (XPS)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday, May 1, 2014
    Objective: 

    This document will examine the technical, safety and administrative problems related to the use of flammable blowing agents in the production of extruded polystyrene boards (XPS). The document focuses on production of XPS rather than the design and certification of the XPS boards itself. The explanations, descriptions and examples are specifically focused on safety elements required for a proper production. The producer of XPS should always be aware of the product quality and on the basis of this knowledge eventually increase the safety system.

  • NAMAs in the refrigeration, air conditioning and foam blowing sectors

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday, November 1, 2013
    Objective: 

    This handbook aims to serve policy makers and practitioners in developing countries as a comprehensive guideline for the preparation and implementation of nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) in the refrigeration, air conditioning and foam blowing (RAC&F) sectors. To date it is the only comprehensive compendium addressing the RAC&F sectors with respect to NAMAs, or, more generally, cost-effective mitigation actions on a sectoral level.

  • Natural Foam Blowing Agents: Sustainable Ozone- and Climate-Friendly Alternatives to HCFCs

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, September 1, 2009
    Objective: 

    GIZ (former GTZ) Proklima has compiled this publication to provide information on natural foam blowing agents as ozone- and climate-friendly alternatives to HCFCs. The first section of the book covers policy-related aspects of technology transition towards natural foam blowing agents and examines the impact legislative changes have on development and adoption of alternative technologies. The second part deals with the use of natural blowing agents in rigid and XPS foam, the conditions for conversion and special technologies. Part 3 comprises case studies from developing countries.

  • Natural Refrigerants - Sustainable Ozone- and Climate-Friendly Alternatives to HCFCs

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, July 1, 2008
    Objective: 

    The handbook contains 31 articles by individual authors covering the following issues: policies and legislation on F-gases and related issues (Part 1), safety concerns and means to overcome (Part 2), a technical assessment of natural refrigerants in different applications (air conditioning, commercial and industrial refrigeration and heat pumps) (Part 3), and case studies by manufacturers and end-users providing insights into market developments and examples of successful conversions to natural refrigerants (Part 4).

  • ODS Banks Global Projekt - Management an destruction of ozone depleting substances

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday, November 1, 2014
    Objective: 

    This project is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB). It is the first global project on ODS waste management dedicated to the development and implementation of integrated strategies for reducing the emissions of Ozone-depleting substances containing waste.

  • Operación de equipo de aire acondicionado tipo split con hidrocarburos Una guía de reconversion para técnicos, instructores e ingenieros de refrigeración

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, October 1, 2014
    Objective: 

    This conversion guide is intended to assist with the safe conversion of air conditioning systems to use flammable hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerants. Converting an air conditioning system from a non-flammable to a flammable refrigerant requires special considerations, which are summarised here.
