Preparing to Meet the Challenge of Low GWP Refrigerants

The regulation of refrigerants continues to be a source of great uncertainty in the HVAC industry. Carbon emissions from hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants and their potential contribution to climate change continue to be critical considerations. The industry has seen a shift toward alternative refrigerants with lower global warming potential (GWP), resulting from global, national and state regulations targeting the phase-down of HFCs.

Even as recently as December 2020, the path forward has evolved, with the passage of the American Innovation & Manufacturing (AIM) Act. This legislation grants the federal government the authority to phase down the production and consumption of HFCs in a manner consistent with the Kigali Amendment and Montreal Protocol.

The industry faces the ongoing challenge of preparing for these changing regulations. See how experts responded to a regulation readiness survey and how Copeland is prepared to offer resources in support:
