Component “HCFC Phase Out in the Foam Sector”
The Project intends HCFCs phase out in the foam production sector (sandwich-panels and preinsulated tubes). Using cyclopentane as an alternative to HCFC-141b and HCFC-22 will be tested at 3 or 4 production facilities, such technological conversion being made through purchase of new or modernization of existing equipment.
Besides, as an alternative to HCFC-141b, hydrocarbons, liquid carbon dioxide, water and methyl formate are offered.
When phasing-out HCFCs at system houses environmentally safe substances are suggested for use.
