Move facilitates global conversion to HFC-32 for HVAC applications
September 11, 2015
Daikin Industries Ltd. announced it is offering companies worldwide free access to 93 patents to encourage them to develop and commercialize air conditioning, cooling, and heat pump equipment that uses HFC-32 as a single-component refrigerant.
Ultimately, I think the elimination of the uncertainty about the terms of the final rule will help the refrigerant world by providing a clear direction. Now, everyone knows what they’re dealing with, and the known is always easier to face than the unknown.
Will replace refrigerants deemed by EPA as no longer acceptable in commercial refrigeration and air conditioning
August 26, 2015
Chemours announced that two new Opteon™ refrigerants with low global warming potential (GWP) are now commercially available in the United States. The company said these are the first in a portfolio of low-GWP stationary refrigerants that it will introduce to the U.S. in the next few years.
Demonstration unit is being showcased until Aug. 22, 2015

Trane, a brand of Ingersoll Rand, is presenting an air-cooled demonstration chiller using the new next-generation, low-global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant DR-55 at the International Institute of Refrigeration’s (IIR’s) International Congress of Refrigeration.
For two years, the commercial refrigeration industry has been reeling from a one-two regulatory punch from the DOE and the EPA. This convergence of aggressive regulations was unprecedented for our industry. It has forced us to explore every possibility to engineer the next generation of refrigeration systems.
Use of next generation refrigerant reduces GWP by around half compared to current refrigerants
August 4, 2015
Thermo King, a manufacturer of transport refrigeration systems and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, announced that it will begin to offer North American customers new options for trailer and self-powered truck products using lower global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants.
Several companies have invested millions of dollars into research and development of low-GWP (global-warming potential) refrigerants, resulting in a number of options for contractors seeking alternatives to the refrigerants that have been delisted under the EPA’s recent rule.
Company suggests suitable replacements for R-404A and R-134a
August 3, 2015
In follow-up to a document that Tecumseh issued in October 2014 regarding recommended refrigerants, the company said it has continued to test various low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants with the objective of determining suitable replacements for R-404A (globally) and R-134a (primarily for North America).
Honeywell Intl. Inc. announced that leading global compressor manufacturers Emerson Climate Technologies Inc., Bitzer, and Frascold have approved Honeywell’s low-global warming potential (low-GWP) refrigerants Solstice N40 (R-448A) and Solstice N13 (R-450A) for use in their commercial refrigeration compressors.
