Principal Secretary Charles Sunkuli presented modern cooling and ozone and climate friendly equipment to 5 training institutions worth 3m. The equipment uses carbon dioxide, a natural refrigerant that is cheap and locally available.


Currently, the country uses substances that contribute to global warming and now there is a shift towards using natural refrigerants like carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons and ammonia among others.   Carbon dioxide is one of the natural refrigerants being adopted to replace ozone depleting substances and those with a negative impact on climate.

The Ministry has been assisting training institutions build capacity to ensure more service technicians are trained to use the equipments.

The beneficiaries included Technical University of Mombasa, Technical University of Kenya, National Industrial Training Institute (NITA) of Mombasa and Kisumu and Nairobi Technical Training Institute who received one set each.

The Ministry through the National Ozone Unit in collaboration with GIZ Proklima of the German Government partnered with Frigoglass Company to acquire the modern cooling and ozone and climate friendly equipment.

The event took place at NEMA headquarters and was witnessed by the Director General Prof. Geoffrey Wahungu, Director, MEAs Richard Mwendandu, Director General, NITA Paul Kosgei, GIZ Proklima Project Manager, Katarina Anrdt, National Ozone Unit Coordinator Marindany Kirui, Director of Administration in the Ministry Charity Chepkonga among others.
