Chemours makes China exhibition debut

Chemours has made its first prominent refrigerants industry appearance in China, at the 2016 China Refrigeration Expo, since spinning off from DuPont in July of 2015.

Chemours has made its first prominent refrigerants industry appearance in China, at the 2016 China Refrigeration Expo, since spinning off from DuPont in July of 2015.

The company also debuted its new portfolio of low GWP fluorochemical solutions at the show, which was held in the New International Exhibition Center in Beijing.

Chemours brings over 85 years of refrigerants leadership China and innovation from DuPont, which invented the fluorochemicals category when it discovered the original fluorine-based refrigerant, Freon.

The business has since demonstrated unshakeable leadership and commitment to the global refrigerants industry as it helped lead the transition away from the original chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) to new products that are both non-ozone depleting and low global warming potential.

Today, Chemours is the global capacity leader for HFO 1234yf-based products, which represent a clear path toward moving the world away from high global warming potential HFCs.

Diego Boeri, global business director, Chemours Fluorochemicals, said: “The Chinese market represents the second largest economic entity in the world and in recent years it has shown a high desire to pursue environmentally friendly and energy efficient solutions.

“As the leading supplier of low global warming potential fluorochemicals we believe that Chemours is expertly positioned to provide Chinese customers with products that offer both better performance for the environment, and their business.”

During the expo, Chemours introduced its newly optimized portfolio to the Chinese market, including the company’s two main refrigerants power brands, Opteon for the company’s low GWP refrigerants, and Freon for its established HCFC and HFC portfolio.

In the past, the company’s base business was represented by three separate brands including Suva and ISCEON, but these products will now be slowly transitioned to Freon as the packaging changes from DuPont to Chemours throughout the 2016 cooling season.
