The F-gas regulation and what it means for the HVAC-R market
Daikin will contribute to the development of a circular economy for the HVAC-R industry. We aim to design out waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use and regenerate natural systems. This is part of our wider commitment to provide safe and healthy air environments while striving to reduce our direct and indirect CO2 emissions.
Achieving a circular economy of refrigerants thanks to the use of Certified Reclaimed Refrigerant and promotion of refrigerant reuse in the market.
Achieving sustainability over the entire lifecyle of an installation, thanks to market leading efficiencies through inverter, Variable Refrigerant Temperature and heat recovery technologies.
Reduced CO2eq thanks to the use of lower GWP refrigerants such as R-32, R-407H, R-1234ze(E).
More efficient refrigerants such as R-32 and microchannel technology reduce the refrigerant charge.
Reusing refrigerant, avoiding more than 150,000 kg of virgin gas being produced each year.
Reclaimed refrigerant meets AHRI700 certified standards, assessed by an independent laboratory, and so is the same quality as virgin refrigerant.
Reclaimed means the refrigerant is regenerated in a high quality way, in line with the F-gas regulation definition.
With a huge potential of R-410A available in existing installations we invite you to join our mission in creating this circular economy. Today for R-410A and for other refrigerants in future.
Virgin and reclaimed refrigerant are used in the Daikin Europe factory. Through an audit process we ensure the reclaimed refrigerant is administratively allocated to the VRV IV+ and Mini VRV factory charge.
