Dichloromethane has a range of uses including as a solvent. Its use as a feedstock for HFC 32 production is insignificant in the context of the scenarios presented in the Hossaini paper, and this use will have essentially no impact on the recovery of the ozone layer. The Hossiani paper calculates current emissions of dichloromethane to be 1.2 million tonnes/year. The paper contains three scenarios with emissions estimated at between 1.2 million tonnes and 10 million tonnes by 2050. However even if the annual production of HFC 32 were to be 1 million tonnes in 2050, the emissions from use of dichloromethane as feedstock is estimated at 8000 tonnes annually based on a 0.5% emission factor. This represents between 0.1% and 1% of the dichloromethane emissions calculated in the Hossaini paper for the three scenarios.
Sanden Automotive Components Corporation, announced in July that it has recently completed the development and industrialization of compressors for automotive air conditioning applying CO2 refrigerant. The company started supplying Daimler AG with the world’s first CO2 compressor for mass-produced passenger cars in May 2017. The Compressor is for the Mercedes-Benz S 400 4MATIC Coupe.
