Low GWP F-gases now 50% of the total HFC/HFO/HCFO supply
The adoption of low GWP F-gases, particularly for refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat pumps, due to the HFC phase down, has resulted in HFC-32 and HFOs/HCFOs now contributing about 50% to the total supply of HFCs/HFOs/HCFOs in the EU in 2021 and 2022. It is, perhaps, not surprising that their share is similar in both years as the current phase-down step for HFCs covers the period 2021-2023. The data available in the 2023 F-gas Report shows the average GWP for (calculated from reported CO2e tonnes and metric tonnes) for total supply of HFCs/HFOs/HCFOs is also similar in 2021 and 2022 but has reduced considerably in recent years (see chart).
