President Biden and EPA Administrator Michael Regan are serious about addressing climate change in a smart, effective manner.

There are actually a bunch of HFC alternatives in the market. A couple of choices are hydrofluoroolefins (HFO, a synthetic alternative to HFC) and hydrocarbons. Most car air conditioners, for example, are now HFO and most new mini-fridges use hydrocarbons. HFOs are categorized as having zero ozone depletion and low global warming potential.

American refrigerant manufacturers are also quite well-poised to take advantage of the transition and new non-HFC systems and appliances are hitting the market every day. It will only help American manufacturers be more competitive while also being more environmentally responsible.
