Chemours’ exhibit and teams will offer insights about environmental and regulatory landscapes, the Chemours Opteon line of hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) refrigerants, and product options and opportunities to help individuals and companies make the refrigerant transition with solutions that best support the growth of their business. Experts including engineers, scientists, technicians, and sales support will engage with Expo participants to offer a variety of educational presentations, one-on-one consults, training sessions, and more.
The 2023 AHR Expo Innovation Awards winner in the Cooling category, Chemours Opteon XL41 (R-454B) refrigerant is an R-410A replacement, offering zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) and an approximate 78% reduction in global warming potential (GWP). With its zero ODP and minimal GWP, Opteon XL41 has already earned the attention of major OEMs, including Carrier, Johnson Controls, and Rheem, which have announced alignment with Chemours for the utilization of this product. Expo participants are invited to stop by the booth to learn more about Opteon XL41 and talk with an expert to help map out the transition plan that is ideal for their business’s compliance and success.
