What are Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases (F-Gas)?
F-gases is a family of man-made gases which are used in industrial applications. Used primarily as they don’t damage the ozone layer, they are often used in place of ozone draining substances. However, F-gases are powerful greenhouse gases which global warming affect is 23,000 times greater than carbon dioxide.
F-Gas Regulations first adopted in 2006 succeeded at steadying the EU F-gas emissions at the 2010 level. Since then new regulations applied from January 1st 2015 aim to strengthen these existing measures and introduces a number of far-reaching changes.
Compliance with F-Gas Regulations is a mandatory requirement.
