AGC Acquires ASHRAE Certification for New Low-GWP R1224yd
2017/11/23
AGC Asahi Glass (AGC), a world-leading manufacturer of glass, chemicals, and high- tech materials, announced that it has obtained certification for HCFO -1224yd(Z), AMO-LEA yd as the trade name, which is a new refrigerant with a lower environmental impact. The certification was granted in October 2017 by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), marking the first time for a Japanese company to obtain approval for a new chemical substance. AGC intends to begin commercial production of the new refrigerant in early 2018, and will continue to increase capacity in line with demand growth.
 
HCFO-1224yd, or R1224yd, is a non-flammable, environmentally-friendly new refrigerant designed mainly for use in centrifugal chillers, binary cycle generators, and waste heat recovery heat pumps. The new refrigerant serves as an alternative to one of conventional refrigerants, HFC-245fa, but with the added benefits of a global warming potential (GWP) value of under 1, while maintaining equal or better refrigerant performance and stability. In addition to newer equipment fitted for R1224yd, existing equipment with certain specifications can also use the product without major modifications, allowing the users to implement preventive measures against global warming without making large investments.
