April 4, 2016

“The Newest Business Case for an HFC Phasedown,” held by IGSD and NRDC on 4 April 2016 at OEWG37, outlined the emerging consensus on cost-effective, immediately available, technical alternatives to high-GWP HFCs.

The presentation demonstrated the findings of government justification for national regulations, industry support for national and international phasedown of HFCs, US EPA SNAP listing of allowed low-GWP alternatives and prohibited HFC technology, analysis by think tanks and independent experts, and actual market penetration.
