Honeywell Distributor in Pakistan has announce plans to stop selling high-GWP R404A and R507 refrigerants in Pakistan next year. In a statement today, Honeywell Distributor in Pakistan announce that it intends to suspend sales of Genet Ron 404A (R404A) and Genet Ron AZ-50 (R507) refrigerants in the EU as a license.
Honeywell Distributor in Pakistan Largest refrigerants Gasses
Honeywell Distributor in Pakistan, one of the world’s largest refrigerants, explains that he is working on this. Due to the reduction plan for F gas management period, shortage of high GWP products is predict.
Next year, a 37% reduction in CO2e requirements is expect under Pakistan F gas regulations. Chemours recently announce that it would increase the monthly price of these high GWP gases by 25% and 30%, respectively. Honeywell was the first manufacturer to announce a shutdown, although it warn of a shortage next year.
This latest announcement will certainly put more inflationary pressure on the price of R404A refrigerant and may encourage other manufacturers to do the same.
FF Gas Reduction
Honeywell Distributor in Pakistan is now reducing its base by 37% in a few months compare to the FF gas reef reduction. This actually means that the Pakistani industry should be more than 115 MtCO2eq. 168 million tons of CO2 equivalent was consume.
The Honeywell Distributor in Pakistan anticipates the need to quickly eliminate high GWP products to address the shorten periods due to the significant reduction in quotas that took effect in January,” Honeywell said. Customers must now turn to environmentally friendly solutions. To meet F gas needs by the end of 2023 in order to prepare for the expect shortage of high GWP products in 2022. “
Julian Solletto, CEO of Honeywell Fluorine Products in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India, warns: “Distributors are in full compliance with F-gas regulations to speed up transitions to the falling alternatives that are now available.” “
No manufacturer wants to continue selling high GWP gas like CO2-base R404A equivalent allocation. They have spent millions of dollars to develop refine gas. Due to its low GWP, it will sell for three times the price of the R404A.
R407F and R448A is Alternatives of R404A Gas
Honeywell Distributor in Pakistan points to low GWP alternatives such as the R407F and R448A and other manufacturers such as Chemours, and more recently Daikin has low GWP alternatives. It is currently more expensive than the R404A and R507, but the cost difference in alternative materials is significantly reduce. And all options are said to offer better energy efficiency.
Honeywell said he will work with a network of license distributors to help customers and partners provide the next generation of refrigerants that best meet their needs. However, he warn that significant reduction values of R404A and R507 would be available to reduce the temporary shortage.
The removal step of the above GWP refrigerants is consider important. To avoid refrigerant shortages next year, groups like EPEE have already warn that at least 50 percent of the current R404A system needs to be modify. The report shows that Pakistan is currently far from that goal. Worst of all, new R404A-base devices continue to be mass-produce, import and install.
R404A with GWP 3922 is the most widely use gas in Pakistan for stationary freezing systems
It is often use in low temperature commercial systems such as gas use in supermarkets. GWP R507 is 3985, but not very common. Of course, it is also use in low and medium temperature freezing systems. Both R404A and R507 were introduce in the 1990s as alternatives to the ozone depleting chlorofluorocarbons R502 and R12, follow by HCFC R22. At that time, in HVAC Companies in Pakistan the effects of global warming and high GWP refrigerants were not consider.
