Frigorigènes à faible GWP : recommandations sur les conditions minimales de formation et de certification des entrepreneurs.

Type de monographie : Guide/Manuel

Résumé

Regulation (EU) No 517/20141 on fluorinated greenhouse gases aims at reducing emissions of these gases through a variety of measures: rules on containment, use, recovery and destruction of fluorinated greenhouse gases, conditions on the placing on the market of certain types of products or equipment containing or relying upon fluorinated greenhouse gases (bans), specific uses of these gases (service ban), quantitative limits for the placing on the market of HFCs (phase-down). A future phase-down of HFCs will lead to a higher use of alternative refrigerants / low GWP refrigerants. Low GWP refrigerants have issues on safety, flammability, toxicity and high pressure which will need to be properly considered when handling those refrigerants. With this guidance document, AREA would like to recommend to worldwide and European decision-makers minimum requirements for training and certification of contractors handling low GWP refrigerants.
