Honeywell today said it will end sales of Genetron 404A (R-404A) and Genetron AZ-50 (R-507) refrigerants in the European Union in 2018 as contracts permit, in order to meet the deadline set by the European Union’s F-Gas Regulations, which stipulate the phase-out of high GWP HFCs by 2020.
The company has acted ahead of the expected scarcity of high GWP products due to the F-gas Regulation phase-down schedule, which determines how much refrigerant can be placed on the European market each year, based on GWP.
Bitzer, the German compressor manufacturer, has published its latest refrigerant report.
The tests run by Ahold and refrigeration consultancy P.W. Vlaskamp B.V. from Dordrecht showed an 8% energy efficiency improvement after the retrofit using the R-449A refrigerant. In addition, without the extra 'abatement' costs, the entire retrofit would pay for itself within five years.
