Jan. 18, 2013: Honeywell Introduces Low-GWP Replacement for R-410A

MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Honeywell has announced the availability of its new Solstice™ L-41 low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant, developed as a lower GWP alternative to R-410A.

According to Honeywell, Solstice L-41 offers a 75 percent reduction in GWP compared to R-410A and is intended to replace R-410A in residential and light commercial air conditioning and heat pump applications. In addition to its lower GWP, the company said the refrigerant offers excellent energy efficiency, is cost effective, and can be used in existing equipment designs with minimal changes.

“Honeywell has been working closely with leading equipment manufacturers to optimize Solstice L-41 to meet the demanding requirements of both stationary air conditioning and heat pump applications across a broad range of operating conditions,” said Tom Morris, director of commercial development for Honeywell Fluorine Products. “Solstice L-41 will allow these manufacturers to offer more environmentally friendly air conditioning and heat pump systems to help address climate change.”

Solstice L-41 is based on Honeywell’s HFO-1234ze technology, which was first introduced in 2008 and has since been commercialized for chillers, insulating foam, and aerosol applications. A new HFO-1234ze manufacturing plant is currently under construction to meet the needs of equipment manufacturers.
