Chemours extends NHL refrigerant deal

USA/CANADA: The National Hockey League has renewed its partnership with Chemours to provide lower GWP refrigerant solutions for its ice rinks.

The renewal of the partnership, which began in 2018, aims to build on the provision of alternatives for the ageing ice rinks across North America that has historically been heavily dependent on ozone depleting or high GWP refrigerants such as R22 and and R507.

In the initial term of the partnership and through collaboration with mechanical contractors, design engineers and equipment manufacturers, approximately 200 community, university and professional rinks. These included the SAP Center, home of the San Jose Sharks in California, and Ball Arena, home of the Colorado Avalanche. The latter rinks transitioned to Chemours lower GWP refrigerant R513A, a non-flammable A1 blend of R134a and R1234yf with a GWP of around 630.
