Abstract:   (1160 Views)

Air conditioning refrigerant R134a has value of global warming potential (GWP) 1300, which is much higher than MAC Directive (GWP below 150) passed in July 2006. This prompted a search for alternative refrigerant with GWP value less than 150. R1234yf is a new refrigerant which has lower GWP value of 4. Effect of blower speed has been compared and flammability issue of R1234yf has been addressed. Cooling time and relative humidity of car air -conditioning system using refrigerant R134a and R1234yf has also been discussed. The paper discusses various aspects for the replacement of R134a and provides a long term sustainable substitute of presently used refrigerant R134a in automobile air-conditioning.
