Seven-Eleven and Honeywell’s Solstice N40 Refrigerants

On October 1, Honeywell (HON) announced that Japanese retail chain Seven-Eleven will adopt the company’s next-generation Solstice N40 refrigerants. The new N40 refrigerants are said to be 65% better at reducing the GWP (global warming potential) compared to the earlier model R-404A. Using N40 refrigerants could result in 20% energy savings. Honeywell’s N40 refrigerants will help Seven-Eleven comply with the guidance of the Act on Rational Use and Proper Management of Fluorocarbons by 2025.
