The AIM Act: HFC Phasedown commenced this year and the stepdown to 40% reduction is imminent. This webinar will provide you with an update regarding the AIM Act, HFC Phasedown schedule, and the impact our society will face now and in the future. We will discuss the role and importance reclaimed refrigerants have as mandated in the AIM Act. Reclaimed refrigerants have near zero GWP, thereby reducing the carbon footprint of operating HVACR systems. By using reclaimed refrigerants, users are actively helping to combat unnecessary GHG refrigerant release. We will also be discussing the transition to next generation refrigerants, including A2L’s.
