European cooling bodies urge immediate end to R404A and R507A reliance

Brochure developed by AREA, EPEE, Asercom and EFCTC highlights importance of reclaimed, recycled and flammable refrigerants to address decreasing availability of higher GWP gas
 
AREA is among four major HVAC bodies calling on the European cooling industry to immediately stop installing R404A and R507A systems in order to meet stricter HFC quota restrictions that came into effect this year. The cuts in availability of these two refrigerants are part of ongoing efforts to cut down greenhouse gas emissions in phases as outlined under the 2015 EU F-Gas regulation.
 
The European air conditioning and refrigeration organisation has unveiled a new brochure that warns of an urgent need for action to protect against the impacts of ongoing reductions in F-Gas quota over the next three years. These market changes will also eventually lead to outright bans of some higher GWP products in refrigeration equipment.
