Montreal Protocol parties to discuss sustainable cold chain, global HFC phasedown and rise in R11 emissions
Meeting in Rome this week (4-8 November) will consider what actions should be taken to build on Kigali Amendment to reduce global warming
New bipartisan legislation proposed in the US will attempt to introduce a national phasedown schedule to support the cooling industry to switch to lower GPW products from using HFC refrigerant.
The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) is committed to ensuring the US will meet its obligations set out under the Kigali Amendment, while also looking at a replacement for the Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) refrigerant rule dropped last year.
The Kigali Amendment to the Montreal protocol will come into effect on January 1, 2019 after twenty countries agreed to ratify the legislation the new targets for cutting use of HFCs globally.
The government has ratified the Kigali amendment to the Montreal Protocol that seeks to curb use of HFCs for purposes such as cooling
A survey of food retailers across France, Germany and the UK has raised questions over the progress of work being undertaken to shift away from HFC use and broader industry awareness of changing regulations.
Training body Centro Studi Galileo (CSG) has expanded the global reach of a specialised assessment process designed to aid nations with the safe handling of alternative and eco-friendly refrigerants as part of wider attempts to move away from HFC use.
