The Energy Department is investing in seven projects to advance research and development of advanced vapor compression and non-vapor compression technologies.
Submit a new idea today and watch the best ideas rise to the top! The best idea will be recognized at ORNL's Buildings Industry Day event scheduled for September 2015.
Honeywell and ORNL have developed R-448A, a non-toxic hydrofluororoolefin (HFO)-based refrigerant alternative for R-404A.
These roadmaps provide recommendations on R&D activities that will, for example, help accelerate the transition to low-GWP refrigerants across the entire HVAC&R industry.
