ASHRAE is supporting the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute’s (ARI) guide for responsible use of refrigerants.

Developed by ARI and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Responsible Use Guide for Minimizing Fluorocarbon Emissions in Manufacturing Facilities encourages refrigerant containment and environmental protection.

"Receiving ASHRAE’s endorsement of ARI’s responsible use of refrigerants guidelines demonstrates the industry is fully embracing this initiative to reduce fluorocarbon emissions in manufacturing facilities," William G. Sutton, president of ARI, said. “Responsible use requires all parties involved with refrigerants -- from the engineers designing products to plant managers and workers on the assembly line -- to be attentive to emission issues and to effectively address them if we are to maintain continued use of these chemicals in HVAC/R products.”

ASHRAE provides guidance on minimizing fluorocarbon emissions through its research, including Standard 147-2002, Reducing Release of Halogenated Refrigerants from Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Equipment and Systems. The standard establishes practices and procedures that will reduce inadvertent release of chlorine containing and other halogen containing refrigerants, such as halogenated chlorofluorocarbons, hydrofluorocarbons and hydrochlorofluorocarbons.
