DuPont unveils new DP-1 low-global-warming refrigerant
Frankfurt, Germany – DuPont Refrigerants has unveiled the first demonstration of its next-generation, low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant, DP-1, as part of its presentation at the recent European Automotive Air Conditioning Show in Frankfurt, Germany.
No changes were made to the demonstration vehicle’s existing air conditioning system in order for DP-1 to run. Because it is compatible with existing technology, DP-1 has the potential to enable a cost-effective global transition to low GWP refrigerants across the entire global mobile a/c industry.
