F Gas Regulations and Phase Down

F Gas Regulations and Phase Down

The F Gas Regulations were developed by the European Union to phase down the use of fluorinated (F) gases.

F gases are powerful greenhouse gases, which trap heat in the earth’s atmosphere, contributing to global warming and climate change.

The aims of the Regulations are to cut the use of F gases and to reduce their release into the atmosphere.

The F Gas phase-down is well underway with the aim that by 2030 the maximum allowable quantities of HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons), the most popular type of F Gas on the market, will be 21% of the volume allowed in 2015. EU figures show that the refrigeration and air conditioning sectors are by far the largest users of HFCs.

F Gas Regulations and Phase Down

Changes to the regulations on the use of HFCs are set against a backdrop of growing demand for occupant health and comfort in buildings. Providing good indoor air quality and high levels of comfort are considered must-have requirements for modern workplaces. And with rising temperatures in the UK, there has never been a greater focus on specifying the right systems for today’s buildings. City Multi VRF and Hybrid VRF utilise R32, which has a 66% lower GWP than the traditional R410A refrigerant seen in many air conditioning systems, making them a perfect choice.
