Hydrofluorocarbons are the Fluorinated-gases (F-Gases) used in various sectors and applications, including heat pump equipment and some Organic Rankine Cycle systems.
With Regulation 517/2014 on F-gases
, the EU aims to prevent and reduce emissions of the fluorinated greenhouse gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol for the period until 2030. Key provisions include a phase-down schedule to reduce quantities of HFCs on the EU market by 79% between 2015 and 2030 and leak checks and leak detection systems for a number of equipment operators, including Organic Rankine Cycle operators.
