Regulatory uncertainty is holding back long-term plans to move towards ever lower GWP refrigerants and systems that will increasingly have some level of toxicity or higher flammability to manage, new findings commissioned by the US Department of Energy have concluded.
Greater consideration of cooling system performance and energy efficiency should be made in the retail sector alongside the drive to make use of lower-GWP refrigerant, the latest RAC Magazine webinar has heard.
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.
RAC Magazine will be hosting a free webinar on Thursday 14 November focused on implementing lower flammability A2L HFO refrigerant blends in supermarkets.
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.
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 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.
RAC Magazine is hosting the latest in a series of free webinars with Chemours on February 7 that is focused on how industry can prepare for the upcoming service and new equipment ban for R404A and other higher GWP refrigerants.
RAC Magazine will be hosting a free webinar later this month in connection with Chemours that will consider how industry can brace itself for a ban on R404A and other high GWP products that is just 14 months away.
As the latest round of F-Gas quota reductions takes hold, the cooling industry now has a range of options in deciding how best to switch to lower GWP refrigerant.
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’.
RAC Magazine’s latest Question Time event is a major focus of this month’s edition, with industry efforts to reclaim wasted gas such as R404A being viewed by attendees as a positive market development.
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
RAC Magazine will later this month be hosting a webinar around the use of low flammability A2L refrigerant.
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.
Free-to-attend event in London on May 17 will look at practicalities of adapting to changing refrigerant market in light of F-Gas regulation
RAC has partnered with refrigerant specialist Chemours to produce a comprehensive digital report tackling the challenges surrounding the ongoing F-Gas legislation – its bans, its quotas and the market factors surrounding it – and pointing readers towards potential solutions.
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.
A US Federal Appeals Court decision to overturn an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ruling branding HFC use for refrigeration as ‘unacceptable’ will be temporarily suspended until judges choose whether to hear formal petitions against the case.
