Honeywell is an established technical leader in the development of ‘4th Generation’ fluorine-based refrigerants (HFOs or hydrofluoroolefins) for the worldwide commercial and industrial refrigeration industry.
We have been at the forefront to develop safer, non-ozone depleting alternatives to older refrigerant technology (CFC and HCFC refrigerants), in compliance with global legislation for their phaseout.
are safe to use
have significantly lower GWP than HFCs
are much lower than all Directives require – the GWP reduction of some Honeywell products can be up to 99.6%
have better performance and are more energy efficient when compared to refrigerants they are intended to replace
use the same technology as HFCs, so implementation and cost to serve are very simple: HFOs need only minor (if any) changes to the technology customers currently use and the differences in implementing and maintenance are minimal
are a global solution, as they are effective in different ambient temperatures
