JAPAN PLACES HFOs OUTSIDE THE FLUOCARBONS EMISSIONS CONTROL LEGISLATION

02.07.2015

Japanese authorities have decided that HFOs 1234yf, 1234zeE and 1233zdE should not be subject to the fluorocarbons emissions control legislation, which strictly regulates their use, recovery and destruction.

Since their GWP is practically nil, authorities do not need to regulate HFOs, and agree that they are to be treated similarly to non fluorinated alternative refrigerants, blowing agents, solvents etc.
