Today is the first Annual World Refrigeration Day! All around the world, companies, agencies and associations responsible for providing equipment, services, support, R&D, regulations, protocols, policies, safety and health will share their knowledge. The core purpose is bringing recognition to the importance of refrigeration (and HVAC/R), its impact on the world, and plans for the future. 

Our favorite topic is refrigerant and refrigerant management. Each week we talk about leaks, impact, controls, best practices and evolving regulations.

Refrigerants have been identified as the Big Bad when it comes to climate change, and therefore the management of those refrigerants has been widely recognized as the No 1 solution. At trakref we know refrigeration management, so we also know that not all management solutions are created equal.

25 years of results have proven to us that leaks and emissions don’t drop either from recycling or from just hoping people will do the right thing.
