To speed up the Green Deal, the European Union could ban, even sooner than expected, the most common refrigerants. From Jan 1 2025, it might not be allowed to install new industrial chillers with several currently used refrigerants. Pfannenberg is ready to support companies in finding the right solution with natural refrigerants.
F-GAS Regulation update proposal: On 5 April 2022, the European Commission made a legislative proposal for a much stronger shift to very low GWP refrigerants in the coming years. From Jan 1, 2025 any self-contained refrigeration equipment must use refrigerants with GWP < 150.
REACH regulation update proposal: On 7 February 2023, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) published a proposal to ban from Jan 1, 2025 the use of a long list of refrigerants, components of which break down very slowly over time (PFAS), despite having very low or zero GWP.
Our approach: Natural Refrigerants
Pfannenberg has developed a range of liquid cooling solutions that are compliant to the updated regulations.
