Honeywell launches lower GWP refrigerants

Honeywell has today officially launched four new lower GWP refrigerants for applications ranging from supermarket refrigeration to industrial cooling.

The new additions to Honeywell’s Solstice brand of HFO refrigerants are Solstice zd (R1233zd), Solstice ze (R1234ze), Solstice N13 (R450A) and Solstice N40 (R448A).

“Each year, the world uses more than 200 million pounds of refrigerant, enough to keep food fresh in 240,000 supermarkets and to cool more than 300,000 commercial buildings,” said George Koutsaftes, global business director for Honeywell’s Fluorine Products business. “Honeywell is committed to continuing to invest in the development and introduction of new offerings, to make it easier for industry to adopt and use alternatives to higher global warming potential refrigerants.”
