Honeywell’s Low GWP Solutions Approved by EPA
MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. — Honeywell announced the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized its environmentally preferable Solstice Refrigerant technology for use in centrifugal and positive displacement chillers and industrial process air conditioning systems. Solstice N15 (R-515B), a non-flammable, low-global-warming-potential (LGWP) refrigerant, was listed by the EPA’s Significant New Alternative Policy program (SNAP) as acceptable for use in centrifugal and positive displacement chillers and new industrial process air conditioning systems.
In addition, the EPA also listed Solstice zd (R-1233zd) as acceptable for use in new and retrofit industrial process refrigeration systems primarily used in chemical, pharmaceutical, petrochemical and manufacturing industries. Numerous global environmental regulations have prompted companies to seek alternative solutions that are reliable, practical and help reduce carbon footprint to meet hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) phasedown requirements in support of the Kigali Amendment.
