On April 30, 2021, the EPA signed a proposed rulemaking to address the production and consumption of HFCs; this would be the first regulation under the #AIMAct.
The rulemaking, among numerous things, proposes to:
• establish the HFC production and consumption baselines;
• establish an allowance allocation program; and
• create an innovative #compliance and enforcement system.
According to an EPA press release on May 3, comments will be accepted on this proposed rule for 45 days after its publication in the the Federal Register (FR). There will also be a public hearing. #Refrigerant365
