Alternative to R410A has 75% lower GWP

Honeywell has developed an alternative to refrigerant R410A with only a quarter of its GWP (global-warming potential). Solstice L-41 is intended to replace R410A in residential and light-commercial air-conditioning and heat-pump applications. This new refrigerant is described as having excellent energy efficiency, cost effectiveness and capable of being used in existing equipment designs with minimal changes.

Solstice L-41 is based on Honeywell’s proven HFO-1234ze technology, which has been commercialised for chillers, insulating foam and aerosol applications. Honeywell has worked closely with leading equipment manufacturers to optimise Solstice L-41 to meet the requirements of stationary air-conditioning and heat-pump applications.
