Refrigerant Regulatory Update - What You Need to Know

Clark Gribble from United Refrigeration will review the federal and state regulations as they relate to the HFC refrigerants in the HVACR industry. You'll learn about the technology transitions that will be necessary to comply with these new regulations, and what to do with your existing systems that are operating in the field.

Topics included

  • HFC Phasedown Schedule (not phase out)
  • HFC Allocation System
  • Technology Transitions
  • GWP Limitations
  • Refrigerant Options
  • The phase down is not refrigerant specific - no HFC has been banned
  • The phase down is based on the CO2 equivalency of the GWP HFC refrigerants.
  • Sector based, possibly application specific, controls will facilitate the transition to lower GWP refrigerants by establishing a maximum GWP for new equipment or restricting the use of certain high GWP HFCs in equipment
  • Future regulations will address the management of refrigerant intended to maximize reclamation and minimize leaks by placing controls, as appropriate, related to activities pertaining to the installation, service, repair or disposal of HFC containing equipment.

Clark Gribble 
graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He has 5 years of experience in the HVACR industry as a Sales Engineer with United Refrigeration in both the Atlanta and Kansas City regions.
