The Future of Refrigerants in Australia

Chemical Refrigerants versus Natural Refrigerants - What is the truth?

The proposed International Treaty to phase down Hydrofluorocarbon Refrigerants (HFCs) by 79% by 2030 will be a priority at the upcoming International Climate Conference in Paris (December 2015). The purpose is to pre-empt dramatic growth in the Global Warming Impact of HFC refrigerants. The ozone-depleting and global warming chemicals that are likely to be phased out under the Montreal Protocol Will have to be replaced. Industry focus is now on the alternatives to high Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerants.

The chemical refrigerant industry is rolling out the fourth generation of synthetic refrigerants. They are categorised as low GWP fluorocarbon refrigerants or unsaturated HFCs and referred to as hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs)
