EPEE fights against pre-charge ban
EUROPE: EPEE, the European Partnership for Energy and the Environment which represents much of the heating and cooling industry in Europe, has expressed its concern at the proposed ban on pre-charged equipment under the F-gas regulations, describing it as disproportionate and counter-productive.
Andrea Voight of EPEE told ACR News: "EPEE has taken note of the Commission proposal to ban pre-charging of equipment, and fully shares the Commission's (and other organisations') objective to ensure that the integrity of the phase-down mechanism is protected. Indeed there should be no loophole in the phase-down mechanism that could negatively impact the main aim of the F-gas regulation: reducing the climate impact of F-gases.
"However, EPEE, together with a wide group of industry organisations, is very concerned that the proposed ban is not the right way forward and is counter-productive. This ban is disproportionate and will create a variety of economic, environmental and safety problems for governments, users, industry and society as a whole," she said.
"EPEE is currently working on a proportionate and balanced solution that will protect the integrity of the phase-down mechanism, but will also safeguard safety, resource efficiency and the competiveness of the EU industry."
