Honeywell Statement on EPA SNAP Ruling

“Honeywell is deeply disappointed in the D.C. Circuit court’s ruling regarding EPA’s Significant New Alternative Policy (SNAP) program because it will adversely impact American innovation, manufacturing and competitiveness in commercializing next-generation technologies that will replace hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). We believe the EPA’s regulation was well-supported by the law and was in the best interests of the public, industry and the environment. We are closely reviewing the decision and are likely to pursue an appeal, and are already taking steps to ensure that the accelerated transition to HFC alternatives continues.

Importantly, today’s decision upheld EPA’s determination that these next-generation solutions present less adverse effects on human health and the environment than HFCs. We strongly encourage the EPA to continue pursuing the phase-out of HFCs and the benefits it provides, including strengthening the United States’ position at the forefront of developing these next-generation technologies.

Phasing down the use of HFCs is a critical step that the world is taking to encourage the adoption of technologies that radically reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) impact of refrigerants, aerosols, solvents and blowing agents. Replacing HFCs with next-generation solutions can significantly reduce GHG emissions, as many new offerings have GWPs that are equal to or lower than carbon dioxide and have as much as 99.9 percent lower impact than the HFCs they replace. Because the world will continue to focus on environmentally friendly and energy-efficient technologies, we encourage government and industry to work together to spur U.S. innovation in this growth sector.”
