From January 2017 all new cars must use a refrigerant with a GWP below 150, in line with EU MAC Directive. R-1234yf offers the best combination of environmental safety and ease of use.
- R-1234yf has a GWP of less than 1, which is 99.9% lower than R-134a
- It has an atmospheric life of only 11 days compared to 13-year lifespan of R-134a
- R-1234yf has the same cooling capacity as R-134a
- Vehiles using R-1234yf are expected to use less fule and produce up to 30% less CO2 resulting in a significantly decreased carbon footprint
