Abstract: This is an open access article under the CC BY-NC-ND license ( This paper compares three different natural refrigerants based system configurations in terms of cooling performance, total equivalent warming impact per year and annual power consumption for the proposed refrigeration systems. Two different cooling load levels were selected to represent a typical supermarket and a convenience store applications. The systems selected in this study include the R717/R744 cascade system configuration, a typical R744 booster configuration and a R744 parallel-compressor booster refrigeration system. The weather conditions of London, UK and Larnaca, Cyprus, were used for the modelling of energy consumption and environmental impacts to represent moderate and warm climatic conditions respectively.
