Several dozen members of the US Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) are pushing for fresh federal legislation that would re-establish work to phase down the use of HFCs at a national level.
Retailer Central England Co-operative has partnered with Chemours on a live trial of the very-low-GWP HFO, R454C, at its new convenience store at Langley Park, Derbyshire.
Chemours has signed an agreement with Arkema to distribute XP40 (R449A) refrigerant in the EU with an eye to meet demand for lower GWP products.
Chemours has argued that the limited availability of cooling technology specifically designed for lower GWP refrigerants is proving to be a key barrier in helping industry meet EU F-Gas reduction commitments.
Chemours has tripled its global production capacity for R1234yf-based products as a reflection of changing demand for refrigerant products that can curb overall greenhouse gas output.
The European Commission is in the process of ensuring regulators have more teeth to tackle a black-market refrigerant trade that industry argues is undermining efforts to curb use of higher GWP refrigerant.
A rapid drop in industry reliance for R404A refrigerant seemingly in favour of lower GWP alternatives has shown the effectiveness of EU F-Gas regulation to tackle HFC use. However, experts warn that industry still must address major challenges around energy efficiency and counterfeit trade.

Chemours’s Janet Ludert describes how lower flammabality A2L refrigerants fits into the short-term and longer-term cooling landscape during the latest RAC Magazine webinar held earlier this week
Honeywell has formally issued an appeal to the US Supreme Court for a review of a lower court ruling that last year reversed an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stance to brand use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) as ‘unacceptable’.
