Representatives from Chemours presented the latest in Low Global Warming Potential Refrigerant Technology at the 2016 International Symposium on new refrigerants and environmental technology in Kobe, Japan.
The Chemours Company (Chemours) (NYSE: CC), a global chemistry company with leading market positions in titanium technologies, fluoroproducts and chemical solutions, presented its latest refrigerant technology at last week's International Symposium on New Refrigerants and Environmental Technology, demonstrating the bright future of their low GWP (global warming potential) hydrofluoro-olefin (HFO) refrigerants. At the conference, Chemours showcased its Opteon™ portfolio of refrigerants for applications ranging from chillers and variable refrigerant flow (VRF) to waste heat recovery for heating and power.
Chemours has commercialized a broad range of Opteon™ refrigerants across multiple applications including mobile air conditioning, stationary refrigeration and chillers. These new refrigerants have quickly been adopted by users around the world as they offer the optimal balance of properties including performance, environmental sustainability, safety and cost. Chemours also has a robust developmental pipeline with additional low GWP solutions on the way for applications including stationary air conditioning and waste heat recovery.
The International Symposium on New Refrigerants and Environmental Technology is a bi-annual research conference organized by the Japan Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Industry Association. The conference offers its participants a view of the latest in refrigerant technologies, specifically those that provide environmentally friendly and energy efficient solutions.
"The Kobe Symposium is of great value to the industry as it allows for its best and brightest minds to come together in one place and share the progress that has been made over the past two years," Diego Boeri, vice president, Chemours Fluorochemicals. "We have made great advancements with our Opteon™ portfolio of low GWP, high performance solutions and we welcome the opportunity to help educate the industry and demonstrate how these products offer long term low GWP solutions for today and tomorrow."
