What does ammonia21.com stand for?
ammonia21.com is part of shecco's new "21" series promoting sustainable technologies. The number "21" stands for coming of age, adulthood, maturity - just as ammonia technology is a technically mature alternative ready to replace many more harmful F-gases worldwide.
What's more, "21" also symbolises the challenges, but also opportunities, mankind will face in the 21st century. Ammonia as a climate-friendly refrigerant will contribute its share so that today's and future generations can make the 21st century a century of sustainability.
The website's tagline - "Everything Natural" - reflects ammonia's main benefits: a natural and efficient solution able to replace chemical alternatives with unknown impacts on the environment and human health.
Where are we today?
Since its launch, over 25 companies and research institutes have joined ammonia21.com as Partners (as of March 2012). Pioneers in ammonia technology, they are actively involved in the development of this collaborative platform. More partners are welcome to join!
From April 2012 on, the ammonia21.com community furthermore serves as gateway to the first global online natural refrigerant community, bringing experts in ammonia, CO2 and hydrocarbon technologies together in the effort to bring natural refrigerants faster to market.
