The HVACR industry (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, Refrigeration) is facing a major challenge arising from the new European F gas legislation from 2014.  The legislation, a key element of the European Climate Change Programme, is designed to reduce emissions of certain refrigerant gases.

Most of the gas cylinders circulating on the market today are designed with the industrial user in mind. For this reason, the cylinders are quite large and heavy, so that more gas can be stored in them. In addition, the typical rental formula is also tailored to the needs of the industrial user.
