The European Union will introduce a full ban on small (<12kW) monobloc heat pumps and air conditioners that contain F-gases with a GWP of at least 150 from 2027 with a complete phase out by 2032.
PHNIX vice president of overseas business, Jab Fan, said the ban paves the way for the adoption of R290 heat pumps.
R290, an eco-friendly refrigerant, has a GWP of 3 and an ODP of 0. As a result, R290 heat pump products provide sustainable heating solutions at a time when HFCs are being phased down.
"In early 2021, we introduced the R290 GreenTherm Series to the global stage, making us the first Chinese heat pump manufacturer to launch R290 heat pumps globally,” Fan said.
“Now we have established standardized production models for R290 heat pumps.
“PHNIX offers a range of R290 heat pumps suitable for various applications, from residential to commercial applications, meeting the heating and hot water needs of different applications,” he said.
“Our R290 heat pumps include four series: Air-to-water heat pumps, All-in-one heat pump water heaters, swimming pool heat pumps and commercial heat pumps.”
PHNIX is a Chinese company which was founded in April, 2002. The company exports 50 per cent of its products to Europe, North America, Middle East and Australia.
