When Cooling Matters to your business, Solstice® Refrigerants Deliver

Honeywell has invested a billion dollars in research, development, and new capacity for Solstice® technology that's helping businesses transition to lower global warming potential (GWP) Hydrofluoroolefins (HFO) refrigerants, that are more environmentally preferable than high-GWP refrigerants, better energy efficient and safer.

Solstice® refrigerants are delivering outstanding business results across applications and industries including Supermarkets, Cold Storage, Food Processing, Chillers, and Heat Pumps.

Solstice® A2L refrigerants

For companies looking for a cost-effective option, HFO-based A2L refrigerants are an excellent choice. They offer a GWP saving of up to 99.9% compared to HFCs and require minimum system/equipment redesign. Honeywell’s A2L refrigerants are designed to mimic the refrigerants they replace by matching capacity and operating parameters while reducing the engineering effort.

Transition to a low-carbon future and transform sustainability into a competitive advantage

Boost your brand value

Cooling matters to your business.  How you cool matters to your customers. Several studies show that consumers’ preference to shop sustainable brands and their willingness to pay more for sustainable products has been increasing substantially1 over the past few years. Being recognized as an environment-friendly business can boost your brand value and provide a compelling competitive advantage.

Improve your bottom line

Hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs) are considered to be more energy efficient than HFCs. For example, Honeywell Solstice® N40 demonstrated an average of between 5% and 15% lower energy consumption in comparison to R-404A.  Transitioning to HFO and HFO blends can help you lower your overall energy footprint and reduce maintenance costs, which has a direct positive impact on your bottom line.

Increase shareholder value

Choosing the right refrigeration technology enables your business to meet your sustainability goals and paves the way to generate capital and build shareholder value over the long-term

The choice of refrigerant matters – because your business runs on it.

Don’t just take our word for that – behind every successful product, there’s a customer success story. Here’s why so many organizations across the world have chosen Solstice® as their business enabler.  

Climate-Controlled Farming

Pure Harvest, a UAE-based agribusiness uses Honeywell’s Solstice® zd (R-1233zd) to cool its climate-controlled, indoor farm for year-round, sustainable production of premium quality fresh fruits and vegetables. This helped Pure Harvest overcome regional challenges such as extreme heat and water scarcity.

High-Ambient Industrial Application

Philip Doyle Manufacturing keeps the metals, mining, and construction industries humming with Solstice® N15 for A/C in severe duty operator crane cabins.

Heat pump for waste heat recovery

FutraHeat’s heat pumps can recover waste heat from as low as 70°C, deliver high grade heat up to 150°C, and its TurboClaw steam compressor uses Honeywell’s Solstice® zd (R-1233zd), a non-flammable, ultra-low-global-warming-potential (LGWP) refrigerant.

Food Processing

By combining the innovative design of Oxford Energy Solutions with Honeywell’s sustainable low-pressure R-515B, Sikorski Sausages Ltd is cutting energy costs, virtually eliminating maintenance, and protecting their profit margins.

Medical Cold Chain

Sinopharm Shanghai Biomedical had adopted Honeywell Solstice® N40 Refrigerant for Vaccine Cold Storage. In a press release Baohua Zhang, chairman of Shanghai Xiongzhi Refrigeration Engineering Co., Ltd. said, “The storage and distribution of vaccines is an important task. We choose to partner with Honeywell to adopt its proven Solstice® N40 solution, ensuring the medicine is stored safely and properly.”

Ice Rinks

RRRink switched to Honeywell Solstice® N40 from R-22 and saw a 13% reduction in the average daily energy used and much better compressor performance. “The ice freezes faster, and we’ve had quite a few of the hockey players comment on the good quality of the ice,” said Ellen Eggelston, manager of The RRRink. 

Monumental buildings

The Eiffel Tower’s new cooling system replaces the legacy refrigerant with Solstice® ze (R-1234ze), providing the tower's west pillar with an energy efficient and cost-effective solution that reduces greenhouse gas emissions. With an upgraded system, the Eiffel Tower can operate more efficiently so visitors in the future can keep admiring and learning from the historic site.
