  • Time is Running Out for HFCs

    Is Time Running Out for HFCs?

    May 19, 2015

    Global consensus to phase-down hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) under the Montreal Protocol is more probable than ever, with former opponent, India, now committed to limiting the production and consumption of HFCs.

    In April, the Working Group of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol met in Bangkok, Thailand to document the progress that has been made in developing more sustainable alternatives to HFCs and to discuss proposals for an HFC phase-down. With sustainable HFC alternatives now on the market or under development for nearly every HFC application, supporters of the phase-down now include India, Brazil, China, and a bloc of African countries.

When used for precision cleaning, Novec fluids can reduce water consumption by up to 6,000 gallons per week for each replacement.

    When deciding on clean agents for fire protection, you may not know how drastically one clean agent can differ from another.

Novec 1230 fluid is created for life – for the life of your system, for the life your people, for the life of our planet and for the life of your investment.
