On February 5, China's first refrigerant blends working group, led by Zhejiang Research Institute of Chemical Industry (ZRICI), was approved by National Standardization Technical Committee on Chemistry. This group is responsible for drafting standards on refrigerant blend products and experiment methods.
China's refrigerant blends have been widely used in refrigeration industry, however, due to lack of national or industrial standards, there exists a number of disputes, which is not conducive for independant research and product export. The group is consisted of 8 members from institutes, colleges and enterprises, such as ZRICI, Dongyue Group, Zhejiang University. The establishment of the group can help explore experiment methods for refrigerant blends and provide technical support, so as to enhance China's testing and analysis technology in the refrigeration industry and accelerate the standardization of refrigerant blend industry.
