"This guide will help you choose an alternative"
The term "retrofit" refers to replacing the refrigerant in a system for a more environmentally-friendly fluid.
Drop-in replacements do not require an oil change, and may require little or no replacement of elastomers and seals.
BOC supplies a range of drop-ins for refrigerants which are or will be banned under environmental laws.

The objectives of the F-GAS Regulation
The principal objective is to contain, prevent and thereby reduce emissions of f-gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol. This Regulation will make a significant contribution towards the European Community's Kyoto Protocol target by introducing cost-effective mitigation measures and to prevent distortion of the internal market.
The main focus is on containment and recovery of f-gases, together with harmonised restrictions on the marketing and use of f-gases in applications where containment of f-gases is difficult to achieve or the use of f-gases is considered inappropriate and suitable alternatives exist.
