USA: The AHRI is to host a webinar explaining the recently passed AIM Act and the phase down of HFCs in the US.
The American Innovation and Manufacturing Act (AIM Act) will phase down the production and consumption of HFCs in the USA over the next 15 years.
The transition to climate friendly substitutes for HFCs is now in full swing, with the US Environmental Protection Agency finalising the first set of regulations implementing the HFC phase down earlier this month.
Future regulatory proceedings are on the horizon that will both further constrain the supply of HFCs and impose new restrictions on the use of certain HFCs in a variety of product categories.
Several states are also imposing or updating state-level requirements on HFCs, and the US Senate is expected to consider ratification of the Kigali Amendment later this year or early next year.
A webinar on October 6 (15.00 EDT) will explain the policy drivers, current and future regulatory requirements, and technical and other strategic considerations as US manufacturers begin to shift away from HFCs and into substitutes and alternatives.
