The Department of Environment and Energy will be holding info sessions on the HFC phase down.
The info sessions’ website states that each session will “discuss what the hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) phase down will mean for HFC users, including equipment owners and technicians, and other changes to the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management (OPSGGM) Program to reduce emissions and increase efficiency.”
The Department of Environment and Energy will be holding info sessions later this year and in early 2018. The info sessions for this year are being held in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Both the Sydney and Melbourne info sessions are being held on 30 November, with the Brisbane info session being held on 4 December. The dates and regions for the 2018 info sessions are yet to be announced.
The info sessions are being held as the HFC phase down begins on 1 January 2018. The Department of Environment and Energy state that the HFC phase down is a “gradual reduction in the maximum amount of HFCs permitted to be imported into Australia.” The HFC phase down was announced by the Government in June last year, along with other measures to reduce emissions and increase the efficiency of the OPSGGM.
The info sessions are free to attend, however attendees must be registered. Registrations can be completed and more information can be found here.
