F-Gas Regulations are European regulations relating to the use of HCFC refrigerants, they have now been introduced as studies have shown HCFC refrigerants such as R22 have a detrimental effect on the ozone layer and may also contribute to global warming, the impact from this states that from the 1st January 2010 the use of virgin HCFC’S including R22 is prohibited in the maintenance and servicing of refrigeration and AC equipment.

Therefore the availability of existing and recycled R22 gas will drive the price up, this is not a long term solution as the use or recycled HCFC’S including R22 will be prohibited from 1 January 2015.

To read more information on the consequences and options available download the technical data sheets below, feel free to contact us with questions on any of our F-Gas Regulations.
