R404a Refrigerant Gas usage will not be allowed in new equipment after 1st January 2020
Use of R404A
The use of HFCs with a GWP above 2,500 will be banned in all new commercial refrigeration equipment placed on the EU market after January 1st 2020. Therefore no a/c or refrigerator/freezer manufacturer will be able to sell equipment after 1 January 2020 if it uses R404A.
Why stop using R4040A now?
Recently one of the largest manufacturers of refrigerants stated that they intend to stop selling high GWP refrigerants such as R404A in Europe from 2018. The price of R404A has risen dramatically over the last year and is predicted to continue increasing. There is now a strong business case to move to a low GWP and economic refrigerant alternative.
Alternatives to R404a
Using another gas in place of R404a will depend on the equipment in use & its purpose. Chill Factor Ltd. can advise on what to do for new equipment and servicing, please contact Paul Akers on 01268 661705.
R22 Refrigerant Gas is now phased out as of 1st January 2015
