Singer continues preservation of ozone layer with R600 refrigerant

The ozone layer acts as a shield for life on earth, absorbing most of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation to protect human beings from harmful rays.

The ozone layer, being an essential aspect of human existence has been a much talked about topic during the recent past while many initiatives have been taken to protect it for future generations.

The United Nations General Assembly in 1994 declared September 16 as the International Day for the preservation of the ozone layer acceding to the Montreal protocol of 1987 and the Vienna Convention for the protection of the ozone layer.

Mahaweli Development and Environment Ministry Director Air Resource Management at National Ozone Unit Rifa Wadood said, “Being an Article 5 country of the Montreal Protocol for substances that deplete the ozone layer, Sri Lanka has successfully phased out chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and is committed to phasing out hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and phase down hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) as refrigerants.”

“As a country, we are highly vulnerable to climate change, a global environmental externality. Considering the global warming impact of ozone layer depletion and the use of HFCs, I urge all the stakeholders including corporates to be responsible for their consumption and production, and choose appropriate alternatives that are less harmful to the environment.”

The theme of World Ozone Day 2021 is ‘Montreal Protocol: Keeping Us, Our Food and Vaccines Cool’. On this day, let us celebrate our success in working together for humanity. Let us think globally and act locally.’’

Singer, the country’s premier consumer durables retailer who is renowned for its eco-friendly product line up stepped forward to address this pressing issue with the launch of its trademark R600a refrigerant back in 2012.

Singer owns a refrigerator manufacturing facility, REGNIS (Lanka) PLC which utilizes cutting edge technology to manufacture high-quality R600a refrigerants. Singer’s R600a refrigerants are highly renowned for low energy consumption and save a considerable amount of money spent on the electricity bill. Most importantly, R600a refrigerants are eco-friendly, making them the ideal solution for environmental protection.

Sharing a timely message for the International Ozone Layer Preservation Day, Singer (Sri Lanka) PLC Director - Marketing Shanil Perera said, “As we celebrate the World Ozone day, it is high time that we focus our attention to environment protection at all costs. We are witnessing an influx of natural disasters, environmental pollution and threat to the ozone layer. It takes a collective effort from all of us to address these concerns.”

Singer in its continuous efforts towards green concepts is trying to create awareness about the persistent threat of ozone layer depletion and encourage people to act responsibly and help save the planet.
