California adopts SNAP rules to ban certain HFCs in certain applications

Last year, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia’ decided that the EPA could not use a section of the Clean Air Act to target HFCs. Under the EPA rules, high GWP refrigerants including R404A, R134a, R407C and R410A were to be removed from the EPA’s SNAP list for use in certain new products.


California adopted nevertheless the SNP rules to achieve its HFC emission reduction goals by 40% below 2013 levels by 2030.
