During the last decade, substantial research activities have been undertaken regarding refrigeration cycles and systems with particular emphasis on the replacement of refrigerants like R134a by refrigerants like hydrocarbons which have negligible GWP (Global Warming Potential).Besides using eco-friendly refrigerants, thrust has been given upon devising methods to increase the efficiency of the refrigeration cycle/system, which will also contribute to reducing emission of GHG(Green House Gases). This paper provides a review of the efforts to replace the HFCs (hydroflurocarbons) which are harmful to the environment.
