Aria Project: environmentally sustainable growth

European regulation F-GAS 517/2014

For ISA, sustainability is not just limited to the product, it is much more: it is also a production process and most of all it is respect for people and the environment. This is the ARIA project. Thanks to ISA’s Research and Development we can offer you a wide, unique range of display cases that use the natural refrigerants R290 and R744.
Buying an ISA product means choosing a product with high added value in terms of sustainability and technology, as well as already in line with European regulations.

European regulation F-GAS 517/2014

What does change in practice?
The EU Regulation 517/2014 has set the ambitious goal of decreasing the use of F-gases by 70% by 2030, thus making it possible to avoid a further increase of 0.5°C by 2100. Following the provision of the maximum quotas, from 2020 the use of all gases with GWP (Global Warming Potential) greater than 2500, thus including the common R404, will be banned.
From 2022 the legislation will further lower the GWP limit to 150, definitively paving the way to natural refrigerants such as R290 (Propane) and R744 (Carbon Dioxide).
Who is affected?

As shown in Annex III, all “refrigerators and freezers for commercial use (hermetically sealed equipment)” are affected by the above regulation. This means that the legislation will have a clear horizontal scope.

What measures should be taken?

Good news: in the world of refrigeration, there are already numerous applications that use natural gas as a standard.
ISA is one of the pioneers of the transition to natural refrigerants. The Aria project, launched at the dawn of the new legislation, proposes numerous solutions based on CO2 and R290, according to the specific needs of the customer.

Is it worth economically?

Well, YES.
The reasons behind this claim are two. First, to facilitate this moment of transition, ISA offers solutions with natural refrigerants at the same price as those with traditional systems.
Second, the price of R404 gas is undergoing a significant speculative attack, which has led to an over 500% increase of its value in less than a year.

Is assistance guaranteed?

Refrigeration associations are mobilizing en masse to update refrigeration professionals on all the technological innovations introduced by the EU legislation.
ISA already trained its technicians in 2015 to better face the challenges and difficulties imposed by the new gases, accumulating experience in assistance and repairs over the years.

In summary

R290 and R744 are today the most economical, safe and sustainable choice on the market.

Buying an ISA natural refrigerant display case means:

  • Complying with European regulations and not risking fines.
  • Protecting yourself from the increase in price of R404 gas.
  • Guaranteed assistance.
  • Equipping yourself with the most advanced technology on the market.
  • Added value to offer to your customers, in particular to the eco-friendly target audience.

Energy Label
European Regulation Energy Label 2019/2018

As of March 1, 2021, the European Energy Label Regulation 2019/2018 came into force for professional equipment. The purpose of the European Union is to reduce the environmental impact in terms of energy consumption by encouraging and promoting the sale of more efficient and sustainable products. Therefore, it will not be possible to sell non-compliant products within the European Union.

Energy Classes
Energy efficiency classes are based on the Energy Efficiency Index (EEI). The lower this value, the higher the energy efficiency. Energy labels rank products based on their energy consumption on a scale of A (most efficient) to G.

Road to 2030
The European classification is challenging, so in the first few years Class A and B will be achieved by very few products. (currently most products will be in class E or F) as they represent Europe's challenge to have over 60% of products in class A and B by 2030.

In concrete terms
The label provides a series of immediate information in terms of Energy Class, Volumes, annual consumption, etc.. It also includes a QR code that links to the technical data sheet containing all mandatory product information collected in the European database EPREL. Sales literature and the company's website must also include mandatory product information.
