ABSTRACT
Today, environment safety has become an important aspect of the industries and people in common. The global warming, climate change ozone layer depletion and many other environmental disasters have prompted a need to look for environmental friendly operations and process for fulfilling our basic and other needs such as transportation, production of materials etc. This paper aims at development of one such eco friendly system for domestic refrigerators. The commonly used domestic refrigerators use the gas which either deplete the ozone layer or contribute in the global warming in the same as CO2 does. This work consists of using a hydrocarbon gas mixture known as mint gas which does not deplete ozone layer, is eco friendly, and can be used in the commonly used refrigerators without any significant change in the system. Efforts have been made to include various aspects to get the maximum knowledge about the refrigerant. Refrigerant physical and chemical properties of different refrigerants are included in this paper. This paper summarizes analysis of refrigerant used in domestic refrigerator with the mint gas. It present tabulated global warming potential and other environmental data for different refrigerants. This paper also discuses on the C.O.P (coefficient of performance).
