The program that allows participating contractors to exchange one 50 lb. or two 30 lb steel cylinders containing a total minimum of 30 pounds of tier one R-22 in exchange for a new DynaCycle Cylinder has been extended through the May .  The program has been met with a strong response from the contracting community at large.

MLF Moves Closer to Phasing Out HCFC’s

Last  year,  the  U.S.  joined  the  EU,  Japan,  Canada,  Australia  and  New Zealand  in  pledging  $450  million  over  the  next  three  years  to  finance  the phase-­out  of  Ozone  Depleting  Substances.    Last  week,  the  U.S.  was  part of  a  group  of  countries  proposing  that  the  phase-­out  of  HFC’s  under  the Montreal  Protocol  would  be  “the  most  cost-­effective,  achievable  and  near-­ term  opportunity  for  significant  GHG  (Green  House  Gas)  mitigation.”

EPA Petitioned to Withdraw Approval of R-134a

The  Environmental  Investigation  Agency  (EIA)  filed  a  petition  requesting that  the  EPA  phase-­out  the  use  of  R134a  in  most  applications  in  the  U.S. According  to  the  EIA,  “HFC-­134a  has  a  global  warming  potential  (GWP)  of 1430  (making  it  1430  times  more  powerful  than  CO2  as  a  greenhouse  gas) and  represents  approximately  half  of  all  HFC  use  in  the  U.S.  Many countries  already  use  or  require  the  use  of  low-­GWP  alternatives  to  HFCs, e.g.,  an  estimated  one  billion+  refrigerators  in  the  EU  and  Asia  run  on hydrocarbons  (GWP  <25)  rather  than  HFCs.   Although  hydrocarbons received  EPA  approval  for  use  in  the  U.S.  in  January,  no  timetable  has yet  been  established  to  require  their  use  in  domestic  refrigerators  and freezers  or  retail  stand-­alone  coolers  and  freezers.”
