Reducing Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) Use and Emissions in the Federal Sector
Washington DC
June 16, 2016

DoD, GSA, and NASA have issued a final rule amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement Executive branch policy in the President’s Climate Action Plan to procure, when feasible, alternatives to high global warming potential (GWP) hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). This final rule will allow agencies to better meet the greenhouse gas emission reduction goals and reporting requirements of the Executive Order on Planning for Sustainability in the Next Decade.

DATES: Effective: June 15, 2016 Published in the Federal Register

The amended FAR clarifies the definition of "high global warming potential hydrofluorocarbons" to mean "any hydrofluorocarbon in a particular end use for which EPA’s SNAP program has identified other acceptable alternatives that have lower global warming potential." Clearly, SNAP has identified multiple sustainable alternatives to HFCs in fire suppression, including GreenEx GreenSol (SFE) Aerosol A.

This final rule impacts all high GWP HFCs used in many common applications, including fire suppression, aerosol cleaning and precision cleaning. 

GreenSol Aerosol is a unique and extremely effective suppression agent which can be used in applications like electrical rooms ,HVAC  rooms, breaker rooms, control rooms, battery storage, generator rooms and engine rooms.

All GreenSol fixed aerosol generators​ qualify for the Presidents Executive Order 13693-Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade. The units are also NFPA 2010 compliant, UL/ULC 2775 and UL/ULC 864 listed. 

If you are considering a new fire protection system for special hazards, consider a GreenSol system and join a list that has thousands of satisfied clients worldwide.
