Position paper - Fluorinated gases Regulation review

11 Jul 2022
Transport, Energy & Climate

The current revision of the European Commission’s fluorinated gases (F-gases) Regulation is ambitious, and its provisions rightly support the long-term goal of reducing F-gas emissions by 98% by 2050. To succeed in this objective, the proposal’s mandates – which affect complex and widespread F-gas applications, including in the refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump (RACHP) sector, inhaled anaesthesia gases used for medical purposes, critical equipment for the European semiconductor industry and high voltage switchgear, must be narrowly and clearly defined. The legislation must also account for ongoing technological innovations and the time and resources industry requires to implement them.
