The Department of the Environment and Energy has announced additional information sessions will be held over the next three months dealing with the hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) phase-down and what it will mean for HFC users including equipment owners and technicians.

Sessions will also cover changes to the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Program with plenty of opportunities for questions and open discussion.

The first session will be held this Thursday, April 19 at Doncaster in Victoria, with two sessions held in Perth (Western Australia) on May 17, 2018.

Information sessions will also be held in Adelaide (South Australia) on June 1, Townsville (North Queensland) on June 14, Gold Coast (Queensland) on June 15 and Brisbane (Queensland) on June 15.

A Darwin (Northern Territory) information session will be held on July 18, 2018.

The HFC phasedown is a gradual reduction in the maximum amount of HFCs permitted to be imported into Australia.

Officially, Australia’s HFC phasedown began on January 1, 2018. For book a seat go to:
