The Blue Angel for Room Air Conditioners
In the project, criteria for the Blue Angel for air conditioners for environmentally friendly room air conditioning were developed. The focus was on greenhouse reduction through halogen-free refrigerants, energy efficiency and noise optimization. The ecological balance shows potential savings of greenhouse gas emissions of 30% up to 50% in tropical climates if natural refrigerants such as propane are used.
The work was closely linked to the strongest sales markets in China and Thailand in order to develop common core criteria. Workshops were held in Beijing and Bangkok in 2017. These discussions formed the basis for acquiring a label holder for the new Blue Angel for air conditioning units.
