"EPA Moves on Green Refrigerants"

"The Environmental Protection Agency on Friday proposed federal approval of climate-friendly refrigerants used in household air conditioners and refrigerators, as part of President Obama’s quest to counter global warming.

The action, part of the agency’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program, is aimed at lowering greenhouse gas emissions.

'This proposal is a great example of how businesses and EPA can foster innovation by working together to identify refrigerants that better protect our environment,' EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said."
