New Legislation to Phase Down HFC’s in the U.S.: Reclaim is Key to its Success
The end of 2020 saw a bright spot in a monumental year that will not soon be forgotten. The AIM Act passed through Congress and will set the stage for the EPA to set new rules for the phase down of Hydrofluorocarbon Refrigerants(HFC’s) in the United States. The passing of this legislation was a necessary prerequisite for the new Biden Administration to ask the Senate to ratify the international Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol. This ratification would re-establish U.S. global leadership in the effort to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions.
