More than 160 refrigerants are maintained under ASHRAE’s refrigerant classification standard, and the list continues to grow as the industry’s need for new refrigerants increases. A review of the new classes of lower global-warming potential (GWP) refrigerants within the context of legacy refrigerants and the forces that drive the development of new refrigerants is the focus of a new educational course from ASHRAE Learning Institute (ALI). The course is being introduced at the ASHRAE 2017 Winter Conference, January 28-February 1, at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, with ASHRAE co-sponsored AHR Expo being held January 30-February 1 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. “ASHRAE-Classified Refrigerants to Meet Society’s Changing Needs” takes place January 29. It is offered by ALI as one of 20 courses at the Conference.
