A new molecule for high-temperature applications
The brand-new molecule, HFO-1336mzz(Z), forms the basis for the working fluid Opteon™ MZ, which allows end-users to expand their heat-pump and ORC application envelop significantly. It can deliver temperatures above 160 °C and is stable to more than 200 °C for organic rankine cycle- (ORC) and waste heat recovery (WHR) applications. In addition, it has excellent environmental properties with a GWP below 10. The commercial launch is scheduled for next year.
