Air conditioners, the EU squeeze: only natural gas starting from 2028
Air conditioners, what could change from 2028?
The stop to the use of refrigerant gases for the operation of air conditioners and heat pumps from 2028 risks having serious repercussions on companies in the sector. A progressive reduction in the use of F-gases up to the complete elimination of their consumption and production by 2050 is foreseen by the proposed revision of the EU regulation on fluorinated gases, currently under discussion in Brussels. The proposed revision of the F-gas Regulation risks limiting the potential expansion of the sector, according to Assoclima. The association asks the government and, in particular, the Ministry of the Environment to take action to support the changes to the text proposed by the industry at all levels. Companies in the sector ask in particular to: guarantee industry more quotas of F-gas until 2030, as required by the current regulation, re-evaluate the bans on the placing on the market of some products and guarantee greater support for the circular economy of refrigerants.
