Fundamentals: The changing landscape of refrigerants and the forces driving the change

As we embark on the fifth round of changes in the refrigerant landscape, we need to look at what is driving this latest change and what options are available to us. To do this we should understand why the previous changes occurred and why it is so difficult to land on a simple set of refrigerants. The process of choosing appears easy, but quickly becomes complicated when we look at the changing regulations and technologies that are available coupled with the commercial realities of the market.
