AHT: Ready for the next step of the EU F-gas regulation

Ready for the next step of the EU F-gas regulation

Climate change, its consequences and how to stop it has been discussed for years. The EU F-gas regulation, which has been in force since 2015, now regulates the next milestone for the commercial refrigeration industry.

Regulation of the
F-Gas Ordinance

From January 1, 2022, hermetic (= plug-in) refrigerators and freezers may no longer be placed on the EU market if they contain CFC refrigerants with a GWP of 150 or more. The F-Gas Ordinance aims to reduce emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases by two thirds by 2030 compared to 2014. The regulation primarily affects HFC, SF6 and PFC gases.

The next regulation of the F-Gas Ordinance will also come into force on January 1st, 2022. According to the EU directive, emissions must be reduced by 70% compared to 1990. The regulation primarily affects fluorinated greenhouse gases, which are mainly used in industry. The aim is to create incentives for the use of alternatives to conventional F-gases.

At AHT, the CFC-free refrigerant R290 has been used in commercial plug-in refrigerators and freezers for over 20 years. The company is thus setting standards for the use of refrigerants with a low global warming potential and high energy efficiency. Our products are now ready to meet the requirements of the EU F-gas regulation that will come into force in 2022.

So if you rely on a refrigerator and freezer cabinet from AHT, you are not only on the safe side with regard to the EU regulation. The products of the Austrian world market leader for plug-in refrigerated and freezer units impress with their quick and easy installation, are economical, maintenance-free, durable and flexible.
