The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) have expanded their HFC online resources following the 27th Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol (MOP 27).
The new resources include a HFC News page, basic documents on HFCs and a list of relevant documents on HFCs in the Fridoc database.
The HFC News page provides the latest news on HFC use and research. The basic documents provide information on transitioning to low GWP alternatives in commercial refrigeration, domestic refrigeration, transport refrigeration, mobile air conditioning and unitary air conditioning, as well as documents on F-Gas Regulation in the UK and high GWP HFCs as alternatives under the Significant New Alternative Policy (SNAP) in the US. The relevant documents on HFCs in the Fridoc database are only available to those who have registered with the IIR.
At the MOP 27 last week, it was agreed that HFCs should be controlled and phased down and that a formal group should be established to begin discussions on the global phasedown.
