Recently, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a phase-out plan on several commonly-used, high-Global Warning Potential (GWP) refrigerants effective as early as 2021. Centrifugal chillers, positive displacement chillers, cold storage warehouses and other retail refrigeration equipment may be affected by this change.
Common chiller refrigerants included under the new regulations include R-134a, R410A, R407C, R-245fa and more. To reduce the threat of harmful emissions affecting the local environment, the EPA has released new listings of safer substitutes to replace the newly prohibited refrigerants.
