  • Simplified mass balance method: An accurate way to track refrigerant emissions

    With the simplified mass balance method, current levels of harmful refrigerant gases or other chemicals that harm the environment, such as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and chlorofluorocarbons (CHCs), can be calculated and work to better predict of future levels of accumulated emissions formulated. This emissions information enables environmental scientists and government regulators to better ...
