shecco has joined the membership of the International Institute for Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR), an organization providing advocacy, education, standards, and information for the benefit of the global ammonia refrigeration industry.
shecco has become this month a member with the International Institute for Ammonia Refrigeration. The work of shecco to help bringing climate friendly technologies faster to market contributes to IIAR’s mission as a leading advocate for the safe, reliable and efficient use of ammonia and other natural refrigerants for industrial applications.
shecco and the IIAR are convinced that ammonia makes an important contribution to daily life as an industrial refrigerant. It is responsible for the year-round availability and variety of food and beverages served daily on breakfast, lunch and dinner tables around the world. Ammonia refrigeration is among the most significant developments of modern times.
Alongside with this, ammonia is generally accepted as the most efficient and cost effective industrial refrigerant available. Beyond its economic advantages, ammonia is a natural refrigerant that is environmentally benign in the atmosphere.
Ammonia does not destroy atmospheric ozone and does not contribute to the greenhouse effect linked to global warming. The use of ammonia as a refrigerant is therefore consistent with international agreements and local policies for reducing global warming and ozone depletion.
Commenting on the partnership, Managing Director of shecco, Marc Chasserot, said, “We are extremely pleased to support IIAR globally in the area of natural refrigerants through membership with their prestigious organization. IIAR is a leader in providing support for industry and alliance partners in the area of refrigeration technology – we expect great developments to come from our membership in their organisation“.
