New HFC Phasedown Law: A Catalyst for Change Did you hear?
The latest pandemic relief package includes bipartisan energy provisions, one of which is on an HFC phase-down in the United States.

Known as the American Innovation and Manufacturing Leadership (AIM) Act, the law sets out to phase down HFC
refrigerants by 85% over the next 15 years. It establishes baselines; allowances; and a schedule for implementation.

Popular HFC Refrigerants Regulated HFC refrigerants, such as R-410A, R407C, R-134a, and R-404A, are listed as regulated substances. The AIM Act provides details around the management of such regulated substances. It states, “Not later than 24 months after the date of enactment of this Act, the Administrator shall … promulgate regulations to control, where appropriate, any practice, process, or activity regarding the servicing, repair, disposal, or installation of equipment that involves a regulated substance.”

This signals a major shift from trends of mixed messages on HFCs in the recent years prior. What once looked like regulatory uncertainty for HFCs level for the foreseeable future has changed.
