Energy saving natural refrigerant projects
Embraco strives to provide innovative solutions for a better quality of life. The company reinforces its commitment to global sustainability by offering a full range of high efficiency compressors and condensing units. The development of natural refrigerant-based technologies represents an important investment priority for the company. In March 2014, Embraco launched its new WISEMOTION, an oil-free refrigeration compressor for home appliances using R600a. It combines the concept of variable displacement with an oil-free solution and is designed using smart electronics, resulting in larger energy efficiency, with up to 20% reductions in energy consumption compared to most commercialised high efficiency compressors on the market. The WISEMOTION technology took ten years to develop and incorporates more than 80 patents.
Compressor recycling initiative
Embraco also boasts an innovative compressor recycling program in Brazil called Top Green. With this program, the raw materials of the compressor shells are recycled and proper disposal of the engine or remaining materials is provided. Since 2000, the program has seen the recycling of 1,350,000 units in Brazil alone. Top Green underscores environmental preservation and prevents materials from being launched into the environment without proper treatment.
