WILMINGTON, Del. - In honor of the 20th anniversary of the Montreal Protocol, DuPont Refrigerants will sponsor an educational Webinar titled, “Ozone Depletion, Global Warming, and Your Business.” The presentation will take place live online on Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2007, at 2 p.m. EST.

Dr. Mack McFarland, environmental fellow, DuPont Fluoroproducts, will discuss the impact of global warming and how the refrigerants industry can prepare to meet the growing challenges of global environmental regulations. Interested parties should pre-register at http://refrigerants.dupont.com.

As part of the Webinar, McFarland, an industry expert on the atmospheric science of ozone depletion and climate change, will address global warming and how existing and developing regulations will impact the refrigerants industry. He also will discuss what the industry should expect in terms of increased pressure to reduce the climate change impacts of both refrigerants and energy use of HVACR equipment.

“Over the past two decades, the Montreal Protocol has become widely recognized as the most successful international environmental agreement. Its mandated phase out of the production and use of ozone-depleting substances, such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), has resulted in significant changes in the HVACR industry,” said Mark Baunchalk, global business manager, DuPont Refrigerants. “DuPont, a proven leader for more than 75 years, is committed to keeping customers ahead of regulatory changes and guiding them toward more sustainable environmental solutions, through innovative cooling technologies, including the broadest portfolio of non-ozone depleting hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants and HFC retrofit blends. We also actively support educational and other initiatives to promote greater understanding and increased awareness of regulations that may impact the industry.”
