WILMINGTON, Del. - DuPont Refrigerants launched a new online resource featuring regulatory, product, and technical information designed specifically to address the needs of North American supermarkets.

Supermarkets are working to reduce ozone-depleting hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) emissions to remain in compliance with regulations and to reduce their environmental footprint by moving to more sustainable hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants. The Website is designed to assist supermarkets and refrigeration contractors in staying current with regulations as they evolve and help them in choosing alternative refrigerants that are most appropriate for their refrigeration systems.

"Our discussions with supermarkets and refrigeration contractors revealed frustration with having to go so many places to get the critical information they need to plan for the transition away from HCFCs," said Kevin O'Shea, North American marketing manager, DuPont Refrigerants.

"With this Website, we provide one-stop information shopping to help the industry move to non-ozone depleting refrigerants quickly and cost effectively." Customized sections of the site are dedicated to regulatory updates, choosing alternative refrigerants, general products and services, and feature case histories from the supermarket industry.

Users will also find quick links to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Canadian regulatory information and requirements, compliance guidelines, refrigerant leak and full charge calculations, trigger rates, checklists, timelines, information, and activities for the supermarkets industry. The new Website is accessible at www.supermarkets.refrigerants.dupont.com.
