MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J. - Honeywell has secured global rights from DuPont allowing the company to sell R-422D, a replacement for R-22 in refrigeration and air conditioning systems. R-422D - a non-ozone-depleting hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerant - is a retrofit solution for replacing R-22 in existing systems. Honeywell will sell R-422D under the Genetron® refrigerants brand name.

“This global agreement allows Honeywell to provide additional solutions for its customers all over the world who must meet regulatory requirements to phase out ozone-depleting substances,” said David Diggs, global business director for the refrigerants business of Honeywell Fluorine Products.
