This Technology Transfer Advances Chile's

  • Nationally Determined Contribution to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions per GDP unit by 30% below the 2007 levels by 2030. The target includes all priority sectors identified in the National Greenhouse Gas Inventory (1990-2010), including use of solvents and other products.

CTCN Response

  • Provide guidance on national policy, regulatory and legal frameworks necessary to support the adoption of low-GWP, higher-efficiency equipment 
  • Introduce natural refrigerant systems to Chilean market and demonstrate effectiveness in reducing ODS and GHG emissions to policy-makers and facility owners 
  • Improve awareness of stakeholders regarding potential refrigeration technologies and their benefits

Relevant Technologies and Approaches

Expected Results

  • Conversion of cold storage facilities from HCFC-22 use to a natural refrigerant system
