Regulations and Building Codes

Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) are greenhouse gases that impact global warming. In 2010 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimated that global hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) consumption in the building/construction foams sector accounted for approximately 38 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent.

Canada and several U.S. states have enacted stringent new environmental regulations to address concerns about the high-Global Warming Potential (GWP) in (HFC) blowing agents. Members of the polyurethanes industry are currently transitioning to low global warming potential (GWP) blowing agents. Here’s a quick overview and what you need to know to make sure your projects comply.

Currently there are no federal requirement to transition to low GWP blowing agents. The transition to low GWP is being led by the states. California, New Jersey, Vermont, and Washington have enacted legislation prohibiting the use of HFCs in the foam sector. Several other states are working within existing authority to promulgate regulations implementing restrictions.

Manufacturers and contractors are subject to fines for non-compliance, check with the state regulations department for information concerning adoption dates, use the map below as a guide.
