Thailand adopts R-32 eco-friendly air conditioning
Thai manufacturer adopts new R-32 air conditioning technology after receiving World Bank Group funding
The World Bank Group and the Montreal Protocol Multilateral Fund (MLF) have helped a Thai manufacturer to become the first in Thailand to produce the new R-32 air conditioning technology, which is more environmentally friendly than older models.
Saijo Denki is now a pioneering cooling manufacturer in Thailand. The firm received funding and support from its partnership organisations, the Multilateral Fund for Implementation of the Montreal Protocol and the World Bank Group.
The new R-32 cooling technology is up to 10 times more energy efficient than older models and does not negatively impact on the ozone layer. According to research, the new R-32 air conditioning models can cut greenhouse gas emissions in residential areas by up to one-third.
The Thai manufacturer, Saijo Denki, is now in a position to offer technologically advanced air conditioning units to its customers, who will also benefit from the energy saving, and therefore cost-cutting, equipment.
The investment in Saijo Denki is part of the Thailand Hydro-chloro-fluorocarbon (HCFC) Phase-out Project, which received a grant of US$ 23 million from the Ozone Projects Trust Fund Grant Agreement, to help Thailand enforce the global rules as set out by the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.
Ulrich Zachau, World Bank Country Director for Thailand, commented: “We welcome the initiative of the Thai private sector in turning the challenges of protecting the global environment into business opportunities.”
