This report, prepared for the European Commission (DG Environment), determines the average annual leakage rate of HFC-134a from mobile air conditioning in the European Union of a "second generation" air conditioner. 300 measurements were carried out on air conditioners of cars up to seven years old. It focused entirely on "regular leakage" excluding "irregular emissions" attributable to system failures caused mostly by accidents, which takes place gradually from undamaged, functioning air conditioners. Extract from the table of contents: how to establish the leakage rate of mobile air conditioning systems?; measurement accuracy; composition and representativity of the sample; elimination of outliers from the sample; annual regular leakage rate of mobile air conditioners in EU-15. In the annexes: measurement protocol and participating garages. The report can be downloaded from the following Web site:
