The economies of the world are increasingly dependent on industrial, building and medical refrigeration, food freezing and cold storage. The demand for refrigeration has seen rapid growth, driving increases in refrigeration energy consumption around the world. At the same time, the HFCs used in the refrigeration process have a strong greenhouse effect, further exacerbating climate change. Many countries, including China, have or will ratify the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, promoting refrigeration energy efficiency and the transition toward climate-safe refrigerants. iGDP tracks developments in the refrigeration industry at home and abroad, providing technical and analytical support for the public sector, industry associations and enterprises, organizing international exchanges and cooperation activities, and promoting green and energy-efficient refrigeration.
