High temperature heat pumps with natural refrigerants

There is a suitable technology for every section of the high temperature heat pump market, from small domestic
units to commercial, industrial and district heating systems, without using fluorinated refrigerants.
There is also great scope for future development of more advanced technologies, such as air systems for heating ventilated buildings, hydrocarbon systems for domestic use, higher-pressure ammonia systems to generate superheated steam and larger transcritical carbon dioxide compressors to capture a share of the industrial and district heating market.
