The British Refrigeration Association (BRA) has produced a 2nd edition of its PURR (Putting into Use Replacement Refrigerants) report.
PURR first edition was produced in 2015 to help industry to address the implications and requirements of the EU F-Gas Regulation 517 (2014), with specific reference to the urgent need for replacement of high GWP R-404A.
Considering the 2021 cap of 45 per cent of the 2015 baseline, extensive use of R-410A (GWP = 2,088) will represent a large share of the quota and its availability be notably affected.
The report also stresses the importance for still in use R-404A systems to be serviced with reclaimed or recycled product.
