HRAI Manager of Regulatory Affairs, Caroline Czajko and Jim Flowers, Business Director, A-Gas participated in the first meeting of AHRI’s Safe Refrigerant Transition Task Force last month. Dave Calabrese, Daikin Industries, was elected as chair of the Task Force.

The focus of the task force is to evaluate the entire supply chain and address issues to enable the safe and reliable use of mildly flammable refrigerants, similar to the effort undertaken in Australia and in Canada through HRAI’s Future Refrigerants Task Team.

The first meeting provided background on both the structure of the effort going forward, as well as technical background on safe transition issues and regulatory drivers. The Task Force is populating a number of working groups, each aiming to address different parts of the supply chain.

The next meeting will take place in May, and attendees will further establish the plan for the group moving forward.
