Modernized Safety Standard: A Crucial Milestone for Clean Cooling

Continued use of refrigerants containing hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), super greenhouse gases thousands of times more potent than CO2, is fueling the climate crisis. With the global stock of household air conditioners expected to triple by 2050, it is critical for this sector to be HFC-free and energy efficient. A crucial milestone was reached this week for […]
