HCFC 22 OR REFRIGERANT 22

7 décembre 2019

HCFC 22 OR REFRIGERANT 22 Hydrochlorofluorocarbons, or HCFCs, are chemicals that are mainly used as refrigerants. Unfortunately, releases of HCFCs deplete the Earth’s protective ozone layer and contribute to climate change.  R-22 is an HCFC refrigerant that is often used in air-conditioning equipment. To protect the Earth’s protective ozone layer, Canada is phasing out R-22, along with other chemicals.  As Canada phases out refrigerant R-22, customer will need to make informed choices when servicing, repairing, or replacing an existing air-conditioning unit or when purchasing a new system. EPA has banned the manufacture of new equipment that contains R-22.   

Phaseout of R-22 and R142b  HCFC-22 (also called R-22) and HCFC-142b are the next two HCFCs that will phase out. The schedule to phase out HCFCs is:  January 1, 2020  Ban on remaining production and import of HCFC-22 and HCFC-142b. After 2020, the servicing of systems with R-22 will rely on recycled quantities.
