Nayef Al Fayez, Jordan’s Minister of Environment, said: “We welcome this great opportunity for Jordan to showcase our pioneering spirit and deep commitment to advancing environmentally friendly solutions in all areas. We are impressed by the high level of technical know-how demonstrated by UNIDO in the implementation of the project and we look forward to sharing results and to seeing replication in the country and the region.”
Dina Kisbi, Director of the Climate Change Directorate at Jordan’s Ministry of Environment, said: “We are proud to confirm that Jordan is a global pioneer in refrigeration technologies and we commend the efforts of local companies in moving ahead towards more efficient refrigeration technologies.”
The Climate and Clean Air Coalition’s HFC Initiative brings together governments, private sector, and intergovernmental organizations to share knowledge and strategies for developing, deploying, and promoting climate-friendly technologies in an effort to transition away from high-GWP HFCs and minimize HFC leakages.
The work in Jordan is part of three ongoing demonstration projects in Chile, Jordan and India to showcase the possibilities of HFC alternative technologies in commercial refrigeration and mobile air conditioning and will provide information on the performance and energy use associated with these alternatives.
