CO2 is considered an environmentally friendly gas, with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1. It is a natural refrigerant because it is not manufactured in a chemical plant. Using Clade’s refrigeration systems can, therefore, help you reduce your carbon footprint significantly.

Clade has been committed to high-quality refrigeration and engineering services for more than 36 years. In the last few years, Clade moved toward natural refrigerants and deployed over 500 natural refrigerant products across the UK. With a history of rigorously designing and manufacturing high-quality products and a desire to innovate within the refrigeration sector, Clade is at the forefront of the move to more eco-friendly refrigeration and heat pumps.

We use CO2 refrigerant in all of our refrigeration systems, and CO2 is considered an eco-friendly gas because of its low Global Warming Potential (GWP). It is non-flammable and has low toxicity levels, so it’s considered a high-safety refrigerant. Additionally, it’s an effective refrigerant with excellent thermo-physical properties and a higher volumetric capacity than conventional refrigerants.

Clade’s refrigeration solutions are comprehensive. Our team of engineers can design your refrigeration system and manufacture and supply it from our product range. Then, our installation team will ensure your new refrigeration system is fully functional and that you’re aware of how to use it. Finally, our after sales support team can provide ongoing maintenance to ensure continued functionality of your refrigeration system. You can pick and choose as many or as few of our services to suit your requirements as needed.
