Dubai, UAE, 25 June 2019: The industry has to push the boundaries when it comes to CO2 applications, said Ziad Al Bawaliz, Regional President, Danfoss Turkey Middle East and Africa, pointing out that despite its reputation as a pollutant, CO2 is one of the most sustainable refrigerants in the market. “Unfortunately, it hasn’t been possible to apply trans-critical CO2 systems in real hot climates – until now,” he said. “We have introduced to the market a new solution, called the Multi Ejector, which is basically designed to lift liquid at low pressures. It can work at lower operating pressures and is, therefore, efficient in any climate.” Al Bawaliz said that with the Multi Ejector Solution, Danfoss offers significantly improved efficiency for any CO2 refrigeration application in any climate, making CO2 the most efficient refrigerant. He highlighted that the first CO2 installation in Amman, Jordan, is with a Danfoss Multi Ejector Solution.

Al Bawaliz said CO2 projects have drawn the interest of contractors from Saudi Arabia. “We very often share case studies of our systems not only in Amman but also in areas with hot climates in the United States, where our CO2 systems with ejector technology runs very well and saves energy and the planet at the same time,” he said. “But the market needs to have clear incentives to migrate to the new technologies via regulations, as well.”

Al Bawaliz stressed that technical training is also an important topic when it comes to ensuring refrigeration technicians have the proper knowledge and skills to handle the system. He said this is the responsibility of the industry, as a whole, adding that Danfoss is committed to training stakeholders by providing free e-lessons to interested parties, which includes a special course on managing CO2 systems.
