F Gas Regulation

by | Jul 10, 2010 | Environmental, Maintenance

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has produced guidance to assist facilities specialists of Offices and Public Buildings to comply with the Irish EC F-gas and ODS Regulations.   The purpose of these regulations is to reduce the emissions of F-gases and Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS).  These gases are commonly used in refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat-pump (RAC) equipment in applications such as office air-conditioning and for critical uses such as computer server rooms.

F-gases have a negative impact on climate change and ODS are harmful to the ozone layer if released into the environment.  The guidance details the key obligations to prevent emissions, gives an overview of best practice and concludes by demonstrating how good containment of gases can improve the efficiency of RAC systems.
