California proceeding with HFC regulations

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is moving forward with its plans to adopt the same EPA SNAP list of unacceptable HFCs that was recently vacated by the U.S. Court of Appeals. On March 22, CARB held a public hearing in Riverside, Calif., on the first phase of its plan – to adopt proposed regulations to prohibit use of certain hydrofluorocarbons in stationary refrigeration and foam end-uses. NAFEM attended the meeting to represent manufacturers’ needs. A recording of the meeting is available. To learn more about CARB’s plan to proceed with HFC bans, read the latest Issue Brief.
