Emerson webinar explains new F-gas rules
USA: Recent changes to the US EPA’s SNAP programme, which will see the phase-out of certain HFCs, will be explained by Emerson in a free webinar later this month.
In September, the EPA ruled on additional changes to refrigerant status through its SNAP (Significant New Alternatives Policy) programme. This latest revision includes an HFC refrigerant phase-out schedule in cold storage refrigeration and some AC applications.
Emerson has announced that the changes will be explained in its next E360 webinar entitled Making Sense of the Latest Rulemaking on Acceptable Refrigerants.
In addition, Dr Rajan Rajendran, vice president of Emerson’s system innovation center and sustainability, who will moderate this webinar, will also explain the amendment to Section 608 of the Clean Air Act.
He will also talk about the various global efforts to phase out high-GWP HFC refrigerants, from the EU’s F-gas initiative and Montreal Protocol meetings to Environmental Canada’s recent proposal and the California Air Resources Board pollutant reduction strategy.
To give attendees insights into the status of new refrigerant availability, refrigerant manufacturers — including Honeywell’s Dr Samuel Yana Motta, Chemours’ Dr Barbara H. Minor and Arkema’s Matt Ritter — will discuss their respective company’s efforts to develop lower-GWP substitutes that would be acceptable for use in a variety of applications.
Finally, Emerson’s Shane Angle, vice president and general manager of air conditioning, will explain how the latest SNAP change of refrigerant status will impact AC chillers.
The webinar will take place on Tuesday, November 29, at 2 pm EST.
