CARB Adopts HFC Regulation

California acts to limit powerful climate-changing chemicals

Regulation keeps in place federal regulations on super-polluting hydrofluorocarbons


23MAR18 The California Air Resources Board (CARB) today adopted a regulation prohibiting the use of specific refrigerants known as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), powerful chemicals that trap heat in the atmosphere at a rate thousands of times that of carbon dioxide, the most common of the climate-changing gases. The action was taken to preserve and continue in California some of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (U.S. EPA) prior prohibitions on HFCs. Last year, a decision by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals limited U.S. EPA’s authority in this area.


The regulation adopted today applies mainly to equipment manufacturers, which cannot use prohibited HFCs in new refrigeration equipment or foams. 


Prohibited HFCs cannot be used in new equipment and materials in California for the following end-uses:

  • Supermarkets and Remote Condensing Units, which are small refrigeration systems used by convenience stores;
  • Refrigerated Food Processing & Dispensing Equipment, for example Slurpee machines and frozen yogurt dispensers;
  • Stand-alone, or small self-contained refrigeration units;
  • Refrigerated vending machines; and
  • Foams used in buildings and other places.
