Fluorinated Gases

At the heart of climate protection lies the crucial task of reducing emissions derived from fluorinated gases, also known as F-Gases. The mission is to steer our planet towards a sustainable future through a strategic decrease in utilizing these high global warming potential agents.
Here’s how the regulatory landscape stands and where EMICERT steps in to facilitate compliance and environmental stewardship:

Understanding regulation (EU) 517/2014

This regulation is the guiding force to substantially reduce emissions of F-Gases, the human-made greenhouse gases with significant global warming effects. Designed to foster climate change mitigation and environmental conservation, its objective is to reduce the EU’s F-Gas emissions by two-thirds by 2030 compared to levels recorded in 2014.
The specific gases targeted under this regulation include:


Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs)

Perfluorocarbons (PFCs)

Sulphur hexafluorides (SF6)

Additional gases listed in Annex II of the regulation

To attain this, the regulation outlines a comprehensive set of rules encompassing the containment, use, recovery, and destruction of F-Gases. It further stipulates a phased reduction approach from 2015 to 2030 to gradually decrease the climate impact of HFCs.
