MRB CRP Releases Technical White Paper on Low GWP Blended Refrigerants

WARRENDALE, Pa., July 22, 2013 - The SAE International MAC Refrigerant Blend Cooperative Research Program [MRB CRP], comprising a group of leading global vehicle OEMs plus Tier One suppliers, has continued its assessment of the operating, technical and safety performance of low GWP blended refrigerants (AC5 and AC6) developed by Mexichem, and based upon R-1234zeE.

The MRB CRP team is now sharing a technical White Paper for these blends, based upon the information previously reported at SAE Thermal Management System Symposium (TMSS) in October 2012, and more recently updated at UNEP Round Table on New Technology in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning held in Milan on 7 June 2013. This White Paper is available on the SAE International website by clicking here.

The team continues its work on phase III tasks described in the White Paper to be completed in Q3 ready to be presented at the SAE TMSS in October 2013.

Sponsors of the MRB CRP include the following:

Behr, Bosch, Chrysler, Cinetic Filling, Daimler, Denso, Doowon, General Motors, Halla Visteon Climate Control, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, Mexichem, Nissan, PSA, Renault, SAIC Motors, Sanden, Schrader International, TEXA, Volvo Cars.
