  • LOW GWP HFOs AND HFCs REFRIGERANT BLENDS SUBSTITUTES TO HIGH GWP HFCs

    As a consequence of the F-Gas Regulation provisions regarding the HFC phase-down and the equipment use restrictions, producers and equipment manufacturers have worked to introduce a number of lower GWP alternatives, by blending HFCs with HFO-1234yf or HFO-1234ze. Blends compositions have to be fine tuned in order to meet technical and energy efficiency performances expected for each kind of application.
