  • A2L HFO rfrigerants
  • hydrocarbon
  • carbon dioxide
  • ammonia
  • R32 

Free resources offer a mix of e-learning, face-to-face training materials, practical exercises, assessments and an e-library of learning resources available at www.realalternatives4life.eu

  • Elearning modules (multilingual)
  • Spreadsheets and tools for measuring the impact of leakage and savings of leakage reduction.
