LRM: The 90 Billion Ton Opportunity

The 90 Billion Ton Opportunity: Lifecycle Refrigerant Management lays out tangible interventions for federal and state policymakers, major corporations, and equipment owners and operators to minimize refrigerant leaks and maximize end-of-life recovery and reclamation. Embracing Lifecycle Refrigerant Management globally can prevent fluorocarbon emissions equal to 90 billion metric tons of CO2 this century—nearly three full years […]

Fact Sheet: California’s New Climate Legislation Tackling HFCs (S.B.1206)

EIA’s Fact Sheet on groundbreaking new climate legislation passed in California to tackle super-pollutant hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). S.B. 1206 sets California on a path to transition out of most HFCs by 2035 to ultra-low or no global warming  potential  (GWP) alternatives and reclaimed refrigerants. EIA’s press release is also available here

2022 Climate-friendly Supermarket Scorecard

In 2020, EIA released its first report scoring the biggest U.S. supermarket chains on their actions to reduce emissions of climate super pollutant hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). Despite some improvement since then, our new 2022 report reveals that US supermarket retailers have made insufficient progress in phasing out HFCs and improving refrigerant management practices. Of the sixteen companies […]

Pathway to Net-Zero: Cooling Product List

The climate impact of cooling equipment, including fridges and air-conditioners, is two-fold: they use huge amounts of electricity and often rely on super-polluting refrigerant gases such as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). In 2020, as part of the work of the COP26 High Level Champions, a Climate Action Pathway for Net-Zero Cooling was launched. This product list has […]
