Featured story: Natural working fluids
A big part of making the industry greener and more energy efficient is to eliminate potential leakage of very potent (artificial) greenhouse gases from e.g. heat pumps. A way to do this is to replace these artificial gases, or working fluids as they are called, with natural working fluids which will not harm the environment if they leak out into the atmosphere. SINTEF and NTNU have decades of experience in using natural working fluids and Norway has come a long way in implementing them. Now, HighEFF is looking to use the knowledge on natural working fluids in new areas, e.g. for surplus heat capture and utilization. Watch the mini-series below (in Norwegian) to learn more on natural working fluids and how HighEFF is looking to use them to make the industry greener and more energy efficient.
