DuPont increases HFO-1234yf production

DuPont has announced that it has increased capacity of Opteon YF (HFO-1234yf) refrigerant to meet demand this year.

Thierry F.J. Vanlancker, president, DuPont Chemicals & Fluoroproducts, said: “DuPont continues to scale-up supply of this breakthrough product and to pursue investments in large-scale and lower-cost production to enable the growing adoption of HFO-1234yf.

“We were the first to deliver supply of HFO-1234yf and we are committed to investing further as demand grows, particularly now that industry and government bodies have re-affirmed the safety of this product.”

The company said that in Japan it has achieved its goals for expanding capacity in support of 2014 demand and that additional capacity at its China facility will be available by July 2015. The China facility will have a further capacity expansion in 2016.

The company began making commercial shipments from a facility in Japan in November 2011 and from a facility in China in October 2012. T
