The consequences of the
F-Gas Regulation 
for air-conditioning, refrigeration and building technology.

Controls at a national level are needed for the targets of the F-Gas Regulation to be realize: An incremental restriction – or “phase-down”.

The “F-Gas Regulation” has been in force since January 1, 2015. It poses major challenges for operators and manufacturers alike. The ventilation- and drive-technology solutions from leading innovation and technology company ebm-papst satisfy standards for flammable refrigerants, which helps manufacturers and operators to switch for Good.

market bottlenecks and steep prices
shield yourselve!

false

Switch for Good with natural refrigerants.

Anyone wanting to shield themselves from market bottlenecks and steep price hikes as far as possible ought to start switching to natural refrigerants with low global-warming potential (GWP) as soon as possible. However, it should be noted that these are often flammable. In other words, it is only possible to make the switch with products that satisfy established standards for flammable refrigerants.

Perfect Match!
ebm-papst satisfies the standards

false

The broad and ever-expanding product portfolio at ebm-papst satisfies these standards: The products it contains can therefore be used safely in conjunction with flammable refrigerants.

  • Tumble dryers = EN 60335-2-11
  • Household cooling devices = EN 60335-2-24
  • Air conditioners and heat pumps = EN 60335-2-40
  • Commercial refrigerating technology = EN 60335-2-89
