EPEE calls for F-Gas Regulation overhaul

The European Partnership for Energy and the Environment (EPEE) is calling for a dramatic overhaul of the F-Gas Regulation, backed by further investment, to ensure that emission levels are driven down.

The paper pre-empts the forthcoming EU F-Gas review, which assess the Regulation’s impact and achievements so far in an ongoing project that’s now been in existence for three years.

It has identified five seperate areas that need to be addressed, putting foward suggestions on improvements, these are:

  • Awarness, surveillance and control to guarantee enforcement
  • Broadening of the F-Gas Regulation’s scope
  • Recovery and re-use of HFCs
  • Harmonisation
  • Leakage rates

It also identifies the proven Dutch STEK model as a favourable system, as reported on RAC.COM last week, as well as reiterating that it favours the use of both HFCs and natural refrigerants, combined with a framework to ensure optimum efficiency
