Mexichem appeals against US Commision refrigerant ruling

Mexichem Fluor has appealed the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) ruling that the import of Chinese refrigerant gas does not harm U.S. industry.

The appealed ruling stated that the import of refrigerant gases from China, specifically R-134a, HFC-134a and 1,1,1,2 –Tetrafluorethane, did not result in “material injury or threat of material injury” to the U.S. refrigerant gas industry.

The ruling was issued with two favourable votes and four against.

The decision of no injury or threat of injury resulted in the elimination of dumping duties of 280.67 per cent and countervailing duties averaging 11.14 per cent found by the Department of Commerce.

Mexichem expects the appeal before the United States Court of International Trade to take approximately one year.
