IIR Informatory Notes on refrigerants designed to meet the needs of decision-makers
How will the re-evaluation of refrigerants at an international level affect you?
For two years now the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) has been drafting a great deal of Informatory Notes about refrigerants.
In view of their impact on global warming in the event of leakage into the atmosphere, fluorinated refrigerants are being gradually reconsidered in a number of countries and commitments in terms of emission phase-down should soon be undertaken on an international level.
“We felt it was important to draft a collection of Notes on the most appropriate actions to take in this field, designed to meet the needs of decision-makers in order to be better prepared for the upcoming deadlines,” Didier Coulomb (Director General of the IIR).
