Future Refrigeration Architectures for Meeting Refrigeration Regulations


Refrigerant regulations in the U.S. continue to evolve in sometimes unpredictable ways, impacting both commercial refrigeration and air conditioning applications. As our industry awaits the outcome of the federal hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) legislation introduced in the House and Senate, 25 states now have joined the U.S. Climate Alliance and vowed to adopt their own regulatory measures. The state of California and its California Air Resources Board (CARB) are forging a path that many states are following — but introducing the possibility of divergent regulatory approaches from state to state.

In this webinar, Emerson’s regulatory experts shed light on the latest proposed legislation and offer insights on how to prepare for what’s on the horizon. Attendees will learn:

- How EPA revisions to Section 608 Refrigerant Management Program are likely to impact requirements relative to HFC refrigerants
- CARB announced plans to build upon its Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) ruling foundation with newly proposed HFC refrigerant phase-down efforts
- How some U.S. Climate Alliance states intend to adopt the EPA’s SNAP Rules 20 and 21 on their own individual timelines
- Discussion of changing standards governing charge limits and safe use of A2L and A3 refrigerants, including the potential impacts on building codes
- Information on the availability of new low-GWP refrigerants
- Update on the new federal HFC regulations that have been introduced by the Senate and the House
- New and emerging industry trends to watch closely
