Upcoming R404A ban to be focus of latest RAC Magazine webinar

RAC editor Andrew Gaved and Janet Ludert of Chemours will later this month discuss the challenges posed by an outright ban on some higher GWP refrigerants that comes into effect from January 2020

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.

The Webinar, entitled ‘Facing up to the 2020 ban on R404A. Are you ready?’, will take place on November 15 and starts at 10:30am (GMT).

Janet Ludert, fluorochemicals marketing manager for Chemours, will join RAC Magazine editor Andrew Gaved to discuss the likely impacts on industry from the ban on refrigerants with a GWP of above 2500. This will include the likely effects on product availability, as well as potential adaption strategies.

The ban comes into place on January 1, 2020, leaving just 14 months for the cooling industry to prepare.

Ms Ludert will set out the current state of readiness in the market for the upcoming ban, as well as the potential options to try and ensure a stable and smooth switch to using more sustainable A1 and A2l refrigerants systems in place of higher GWP products on the market.

She will also set out the company’s development of its Opteon range of refrigerants and their potential applications in a changing industry.

Any parties interested in viewing the webinar can sign up for free here.
