Compressor manufacturers are studying to design compressors using nutural refrigerants so that they could best meet the market's requirement. e.g. Panasonic scroll compressor factory (old sanyo), it goes ahead in the market. 

They have pushed to the markets 3 series of CO2 compressors:

-15F serials

-20F serials

-33F serials


CO2 compressors are installed in air source heat pump, cold room, show case.
