Wednesday, November 14, 2018. 1:00PM. Webinar: Pre-Proposal Hydrofluorocarbon Rulemaking. Sponsored by The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. More information here.
DEC will host an informational webinar on Wednesday, November 14, 2018 to provide the public the opportunity to learn and ask questions about potential regulatory actions to reduce hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) emissions. HFCs are greenhouse gases that are up to 4,000 times more potent than carbon dioxide. DEC is considering adopting prohibitions on specific uses of HFCs in refrigerants, aerosol propellants, and foam-blowing agents that were previously finalized by the US Environmental Protection Agency in 2015 and 2016, under the Significant New Alternatives Program. Potentially affected entities include the manufacturers, retailers, and users of refrigerants, refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment, and other affected consumer products.
