On this episode, we are joined again by Dr. Rajan Rajendran and Jennifer Butsch, Emerson’s regulatory experts. This episode of What’s New with Regs walks through the recently approved American Innovation and Manufacturing Act (AIM Act). We discuss what the AIM Act is, what it means moving forward as well as how it is different from the Kigali Amendment. We also make a point to touch on the concept of sector base rulemaking, how the EPA might view this topic and the AIM act’s impact to low GWP Refrigerants.
