How Do We Cool a Warming World (Without Making It Warmer)?
With special coverage of air conditioning, the October 2019 edition of Accelerate Magazine examines the global effort to improve the efficiency of room ACs (in part through the use of propane refrigerant) so that the upsurge of comfort cooling in a warming world doesn’t exacerbate the climate crisis.
Also in the October 2019 issue: regional articles on: Weis Markets’ transcritical CO2 system maintaining efficiency; a Belgian Delhaize store cutting its energy bills with a ammonia/CO2 /glycol system; a massive transcritical system at a produce store in South Africa; an Australian IGA store’s integrated refrigeration-AC-heating CO2 system; Japan’s largest warehouse using ammonia/CO2 technology; the Philippine’s first R290 store; and Spar’s use of R290 in China. Global trend articles include a review of World Ozone Day and a survey of attitudes toward climate change.
