California introduces groundbreaking program to reduce climate “super pollutants”

The changing regulatory landscape is effecting food retailers of all sizes and is a major source of uncertainty in the commercial refrigeration industry.

Many of the hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants used in commercial refrigeration produce environmentally harmful carbon emissions. As a result, global, national and state regulations have been established to phase-out these harmful HFCs over time. As the industry looks for alternative refrigerants with lower global warming potential (GWP) and ozone depletion potential (ODP), questions arise concerning regulatory changes, refrigerant performance and safety. Hillphoenix is the industry expert in natural refrigerants and can help your company during this time of change.

California introduces groundbreaking program to reduce climate “super pollutants”

December 10, 2020
SACRAMENTO – Today the California Air Resources Board approved first-in-the-nation rules to curb the impact of powerful artificial refrigerants that pose a growing danger globally to efforts to contain the worst impacts of climate change. The refrigerants, known as hydrofluorocarbons or HFCs, are considered to be super pollutants because they trap heat in the atmosphere thousands of times more effectively than carbon dioxide, the most prevalent greenhouse gas. These rules can
