Carbon tetrachloride (CTC) is the feedstock for low GWP HFO alternatives that help enable compliance with the Kigali Amendments and the AIM Act and allow U.S. companies to maintain competitiveness in global markets. CTC is a key raw material used in next-generation refrigerants for air conditioning systems in more than 95% of automobiles sold in the United States. Additionally, CTC is a feedstock in foam-blowing agents for insulation products to enhance energy efficiency.
Uses and Applications
Carbon tetrachloride is the feedstock for low-global warming potential (GWP) hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) alternatives used in next-generation refrigerants for automotive air conditioning systems manufactured in the U.S. These can enable compliance with the Kigali Amendment and the American Innovation and Manufacturing (AIM) Act, and allows U.S. companies to maintain competitiveness in global markets.
