Daikin’s recently launched the Natural HVACR 4 LIFE research project will emphasis on energy efficiency through Conveni-Pack that is a combined refrigeration, comfort cooling and heating solution.
The unit recovers heat from the refrigeration display cabinets and evaporators and reuses it to heat other areas of the building at no extra cost. Current Conveni-Pack uses refrigerant R-410A, an HFC refrigerant that allows for high energy efficiency and a compact design, ideally suited for locations with limited outdoor space.
Further, the unit uses a non-HFC refrigerant, R744 (CO2), and research further mitigation options to ensure safety and enhance energy performance, typical challenges of using CO2 as a refrigerant, especially in warm climates.
Daikin’s the Natural HVACR 4 LIFE research project is co-funded by the European Union’s LIFE programme. The project is coordinated by Daikin Europe NV in partnership with Daikin Air Conditioning Germany GmbH and Daikin AC Spain. The project is embedded in the company-wide initiative to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2050, including the emissions generated throughout the life cycle of Daikin products.
