New Measures to Control Manufacture, Import, and Certain Uses of Hydrofluorocarbons
December 22, 2014
Environment Canada announced that it is moving forward with regulatory measures to limit the growth of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). It has published a Notice of Intent to Regulate Hydrofluorocarbons in the Canada Gazette outlining the scope of the proposed measures for HFCs, which are considered potent greenhouse gases.
Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) president Warren Heeley recently forwarded a list of comments to Environment Canada regarding draft revisions to the Code of Practice for Elimination of Fluorocarbon Emissions from Refrigeration and Air Conditioning.
