In his presentation at the International Council of Air-Conditioning, Refrigeration, and Heating Manufacturers’ Association (ICARHMA) annual meeting last month Emerson engineering Vice President Warren Beeton emphasized that next generation refrigerants should maintain the industry’s ability to meet increasing efficiency mandates, minimize total GHG emissions, and maintain consumer affordability and safety.

Beeton spoke during a panel discussion on refrigerants. Panel participants included refrigerant manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers, with Emerson representing components makers. The panel discussed next generation low GWP refrigerants and HVAC industry imperatives. ICARHMA said the panel's purpose was to provide information and generate discussion within ICARHMA council members about the current global political climate related to hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) and potential successor refrigerants to HFCs.

Beeton told the panel that the industry should focus on both direct and indirect environmental effects of refrigerants, looking at energy efficiency as the largest driver of emissions.

The ICARHMA meeting was hosted by the U.S. member to the council, the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI), which serves as the 2010 Secretariat. Attendees included representatives from Brazil (ABRAVA), Canada (HRAI), China (CRAA), Europe (EUROVENT), Japan (JRAIA) and Korea (KRAIA).
