Connecting Local to Global


Over recent years, attention on the issue of ozone depletion has remained focused on the obligatory phasing out of ozone depleting substances (ODS). At the same time, awareness of climate change has increased, along with the development of national and regional greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets. In order to achieve reduction in emissions of both ODSs and GHGs, attention has to be paid to activities at a micro-level. This includes reducing leakage rates, improving energy-efficiency and preventing other environmental impacts, by directing the activities of individuals, and influencing the design and maintenance of equipment.

The manual is written for those who have a relatively comprehensive level of knowledge and understanding of RAC systems and associated technology. The material within this manual may be used for the purpose of developing training resources or parts of training courses, as well as general guidance and information for technicians on issues that are closely related to the use and application of alternative refrigerants. Most training courses are likely to cover a range of topics associated with RAC systems, and as such, the material within this manual may contribute towards those elements that address refrigerant use and handling.

The Manual for Refrigeration Servicing Technicians was edited by WTA and published as a free e-book.
