HFC phase down information sessions

Posted on : Thursday, 22 February 2018

As part of a national phase down in hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) importation that began on 1 January 2018, the Department of the Environment and Energy is running a series of information sessions to explain how the initiative will impact HFC users.


The phase down will gradually reduce the amount of HFCs permitted to be imported into Australia. The reduction will impact users of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment, fire suppression, foam blowing, aerosols and medical applications.


The information sessions will be run around the country, starting in Tasmania, and will discuss what the phase down means for HFC users, and other changes to the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Program to reduce emissions and increase efficiency.


Registration is now open for the Tasmanian events:


Launceston 21 March 2018


Hobart 22 March 2018
