Event Description

Join Illinois Green Alliance and E2 on July 30, 2020 at 1:00 PM for a virtual deep-dive discussion on how commercial buildings can transition to low-carbon refrigerants.

Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) used in refrigeration and air conditioning are one of the top five contributors to climate change. Pound for pound, HFCs trap hundreds of times more heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide. With legislation in Congress calling for a HFC phase-out and investors worldwide noting the importance of combating climate change, now is the time to consider HFC alternatives.

You’ll hear from industry leaders with technical expertise about cutting edge HFC alternatives and lessons learned from making the transition.
