Decrease emissions from refrigeration through efficiency increase and phase-out of HCFs in the sector

Activities: (2014 - 2028)
The activities under the NAMA include:

  • Produce new refrigerators that have an increased energy efficiency as compared to those currently available in the market;
  • Replace old refrigerators still working with R134a based refrigerant;
  • Recover and destroy refrigerant gas from those old refrigerators;
  • Gradually phase out HFCs.

The NAMA is split into four phases:

  • Design of the overall NAMA;
  • Design of a pilot programme;
  • Implementation of pilot programme;
  • Implementation of fuel scale programme.

Impact and MRV


Cumulative GHG reductions: 2 MtCO2e
Mitigative capacity:

Phase-out of HFCs will contribute to emission reductions beyond the time frame of the NAMA

MRV Framework: (2014 - 2028)

MRV approach relies on keeping track of collection of old and sales of new refrigerators, whose features (such as energy consumption) are measured.
