EPA Moves Forward with Phase Down of Climate-Damaging Hydrofluorocarbons

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.
