Source: whirlpoolcorp.com
Whirlpool Corporation announced it has implemented the use of Honeywell's Solstice® Liquid Blowing Agent (LBA), into its environmentally responsible and energy efficient insulation used in U.S.-made refrigerators and freezers. The global warming potential (GWP) of the new foam blowing agent is 99.9% lower than 245fa the most common foam blowing agent widely used within the U.S. industry, resulting in a more environmentally-responsible household refrigerator. The conversion of all U.S. manufacturing centers is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2014.
