The fluorine-containing refrigeration appliances will cut into the EU market

May 20, the European Union issued on fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-Gas) Regulation Ordinance - Regulations (EU) No 517/2014. The new regulations will replace the original regulations (EC) No 842/2006, aims to reduce the level of greenhouse 2030 fluorinated gases to third now. The Bill seeks to January 1, 2015 came into effect, involving fluorinated greenhouse gases in the EU producers, importers and so will be affected by the regulations.

In order to control the amount of fluorinated greenhouse gases territory, relieve pressure on the EU environment for fluorinated greenhouse gases, the European Union from the beginning of the implementation of the quota system in 2015. All of fluorinated greenhouse gases manufacturers and importers are required before July 1, 2014, the EU registered.

To this end, the inspection and quarantine departments to remind the relevant enterprises, the EU should pay close attention to the release of the new Act, to accelerate upgrading of energy saving products, with particular emphasis on foreign energy saving technology digestion, absorption and utilization; enhance all kinds of new green technologies alternative refrigerants R & D level, efforts to break the monopoly of foreign technology, master intellectual property rights, boost the core competitiveness upgrading.
