Following the valuable input received to the 2011 global natural refrigerant industry survey, market development company shecco is launching a new survey to gather information on market trends for natural refrigerants in the European continent. Covering 50+ countries results compiled from this survey will once again be shared in a new GUIDE publication.

The latest shecco survey is designed to identify emerging trends for CO2, ammonia, the group of hydrocarbons, water, and air, as well as provide insights and assess how well the industry is doing. By providing input you will support shecco’s efforts to provide essential information on the latest market trends, and industry needs. Respondents who took part in the first shecco natural refrigerant survey are encouraged to take part again.
The survey is confidential, and easy to complete. It will take participants around 10-15 minutes, and has a maximum of 21 questions. To access the survey, please follow this link:

In spring 2013 shecco will launch the second in the GUIDE series, this time aimed at the North American market, the ‘GUIDE 2013: Natural Refrigerants - Market growth for North America’. This publication will share results from the 2012 North American survey on natural refrigerants, which received over 500 replies.
The easy-to access Guides, which combine both background information and an in-depth evaluation of the market prospective for natural working fluids, have received very positive feedback, often quoted in presentations by major HVAC&R industry players.
