HFCs, HFOs and HCFOs are used in a wide variety of applications
HFCs have good safety and technical properties and continue to be widely used a range of applications including heat pumps. Lower GWP HFC refrigerants are replacing some widely used high GWP HFCs. The HFOs and HCFOs are designed to have similar safety and technical propertiesto the HFCs but have insignificant contribution to global warming making them an excellent choice as refrigerants and for other applications. A range of HFC/HFO refrigerant blends offer lower GWPs than the HFCs.
