reftrack -- RULEMAKING PROPOSAL WORKSHOP OCTOBER 24, 2017: HIGH GLOBAL WARMING POTENTIAL REFRIGERANT EMISSIONS REDUCTIONS Posted: 05 Oct 2017 15:09:21
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) staff invites you to participate in a public workshop to discuss a proposal for reducing high-global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant emissions from stationary refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment using a two-step process:. 1. Begin a rulemaking process to adopt into state regulations, with any appropriate modifications, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (U.S. EPA) Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Rule provisions as they relate to prohibitions on certain hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) in stationary refrigeration and air conditioning end uses; and 2. Further evaluate the proposed HFC mitigation strategies identified in CARB’s adopted Short Lived Climate Pollutant (SLCP) Strategy for potential future rulemakings. At the workshop, CARB staff will present an overview of HFC emissions sectors, reduction efforts to date, the draft regulatory language for incorporating U.S. EPA SNAP Rule provisions into state regulations, and next steps on the HFC mitigation strategies identified in the SLCP Strategy.
