The Chemours Company announced its roadmap for next-generation thermal management solutions at the 2023 AHR Expo. This three-horizon plan includes commercial product adoption, new blend development collaboration, and next-generation product development—all of which are currently underway.
Horizon one, commercial product adoption, includes continuing the company’s commitment to supporting the adoption of its current product offerings including its Opteon XL and XP series of zero ozone depletion potential (ODP), low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants, which offer the optimal balance of performance, sustainability, cost, and are classified as low-flammability (A2L) refrigerants. Horizon two is focused on collaborations with customers to identify the most promising development blends with lower-GWPs to meet the coming phase downs and to support Chemours’ already robust portfolio of ultra-low GWP products such as Opteon YF.
Building upon the performance, safety, and sustainability profile of its Opteon portfolio, horizon three is the investment in the development of next-generation thermal management solutions. Chemours expects this novel fluorinated technology to balance critical properties from GWP to flammability to degradation profile and performance to meet customer needs and the evolving regulatory landscape. It is the company’s intention to have these innovative and sustainable solutions available for customer qualification in 2025.
Chemours will spotlight its Opteon portfolio at the 2023 AHR Expo at booth C-6425 at the Expo in Atlanta, Georgia, from Feb. 6-8, 2023.
