Abstract

In Australia and others developed countries, concerns about global warming have increased, and these
concerns influence the use of refrigerants as working fluids in mechanical vapour compression refrigeration
systems. One of the most important aspects of refrigerant selection is to reduce its impact on the environment and
the ozone layer. This paper provides a comprehensive review of various theoretical and experimental studies
which have been carried out on air conditioning and refrigeration applications to investigate the effect of
refrigerants on the environment. The analysis in this paper reveals that alternative refrigerants are the most
suitable working fluids that can be used in refrigeration systems to meet the needs of the environment. This study
also suggests that natural types of refrigerants such as water, carbon dioxide, and hydrocarbon will play a
significant role in protecting the environment and providing alternative friendly refrigerants to be used in
refrigeration and air conditioning systems.
