What do you need to know?

The F-Gas Regulations are now being aggressively put into force throughout Europe and they are completely forcing a change in refrigeration choice. isentra is leading the way with Carbon Dioxide as the natural choice over HFC refrigerants, such as R404A, R134A. R407 & R448. Carbon Dioxide is a fantastic, natural refrigerant, despite the irony of it being frowned upon in the climate change debate. CO2 / R744 is actually, 3,821 times less polluting to the environment than the traditional mainstream synthetic HFC R404A.

The impact of F-Gas

Here are just some of the reasons for moving away from the hugely polluting HFC synthetic ingredients:

  • HFC Phase Down is now – there’s already been a 79% reduction in HFC use
  • Mandatory requirements are being policed now
  • Costs are volatile and unpredictable
  • HFC refrigerants will stop being freely available
  • In new systems, HFC refrigerants will soon be illegal
  • Service bans imposed for old HFC refrigerants
  • End users must track their HFC usage
  • Documented and frequent HFC leak checks


HFC Refrigerants – the time to change is now

F-Gas Regulations are forcing the fastest transformation ever seen in the cooling industry. New technologies with a low Global Warning Potential (GWP) are essential to meet and achieve the F-Gas Regulation demands and objectives.
