Extracts from a recent article in RAC have advised…
“The whole cooling supply chain from refrigerant suppliers down to end user customers needs to take more action more quickly if the industry is to head off a supply and demand crisis over the upcoming F-Gas phase downs.Experts have warned again that dramatic drops in the European quota of HFCs refrigerant in the next five years would catch the UK industry out, if they did not carefully plan moves towards lower-GWP refrigerants.
The ban date of 2020 for new equipment with high GWP gas hides the fact that there is also a service ban, and more importantly it hides the fact that there is a 44 per cent cut in quota in 2018.”
As such EMI Services are currently working on developing new reporting systems and technologies so that customers can plan capital phase in of new equipment.
If you need your systems checking and asset managing ready for the 2020 ban then please contact us to arrange for a survey and report. EMI Services can offer full asset detailing information along with TM44 reports with a strategic plan to allow for your site to be compliant ready when the bans come into effect, as well as retro fitting on some larger systems of low GWP gases.
