SERGII now automatically calculates the fugitive emissions generated from refrigeration plant and equipment. Using a virtual meter and using reference to annually published emissions factors for each fugitive emission type, fugitive emissions can be calculated alongside utilising recoded refrigerant top-ups can be added alongside recording new equipment and replacement.
Fugitive emissions are leaks of greenhouse gases, for example from refrigeration and air-conditioning units. Refrigerant gases are generally extremely potent greenhouse gases, some of which are thousands of times more damaging than carbon dioxide (CO2). By automatically recognising asset categories which will contain refrigerant and prompting users to assign a refrigerant type and volume.
