杜邦与霍尼韦尔宣布制冷剂全球联合开发协议

2007年03月30日 14:50:00 中国传动网

特拉华州WILMINGTON和莫里斯镇3约29日新闻――美国杜邦公司和霍尼韦尔公司今天宣布就自动车空气调节行业达成了一项全球联合发展协议,加速研发下一代低全球变暖潜值制冷剂,并将其商品化。 新制冷剂将使汽车制造商符合欧洲新规定,该规定要求自动车空气调节应用领域运用低全球变暖潜值(GWP)制冷剂。今天的自动车空气调节运用氢氟烃-134a,新规定计划2011年新型汽车开始实施该规定,到2017年全部机动车辆使用该新型制冷剂。 规定,杜邦和霍尼韦尔将共同鉴别,研发,测试和检测新的低GWP制冷剂,该制冷剂与汽车行业其他技术相比更经济实惠。汽车制造商目前正在评估运用该技术的汽车交流系统。汽车制造商正在寻找一种可行的氟化气方案,该方案适合传统的HFC-134a自动车空调系统技术,相比二氧化碳技术更经济。 霍尼韦尔公司Fluorine 产品部副主席兼总经理Terrence Hahn 表示:“霍尼韦尔有着研发制冷技术成熟的经验以满足工业和客户的需求”“我们希望提供一种接近的替代产品以降低汽车行业昂贵的系统设计需求。对于消费者来说,我们将提供一种更环保的,低GWP 的解决方案,而不会降低汽车舒适度和可靠性。” 品公司副主席兼总经理Cynthia C. Green表示:“杜邦公司的科技和创新有助于减少工业领域和社会从氯氟化碳到可选择的产品的转换,现在,我们对全球汽车行业对制冷剂的要求作出快速响应,生产新型低全球变暖潜值制冷剂,降低全球变暖的可能性需要更好地平衡安全性,性能和性价比间的利益关系。”“通过利用杜邦和霍尼韦尔公司资源,我们可以加速产品验证和商品化,及时提供新的全球工业方案以满足规定要求,加速减少全球二氧化碳的排放。” 作为协议内容的一部分,杜邦和霍尼韦尔计划共享资源,投资和技术。两家公司将与汽车行业紧密配合,到2007年中旬验证该制冷剂。据行业预测,全球将有四亿多辆汽车安装空气调节系统,每个系统运用一到量磅制冷剂。利用氟制冷剂的空气调节系统,如那些霍尼韦尔和杜邦寻求研发的制冷系统,比基于二氧化碳的空气制冷系统更高效,在很高的周围环境温度时尤为如此。 根据杜邦公司的测试,比较运用杜邦公司的低GWP制冷剂和二氧化碳制冷剂的汽车交流系统,到2017年,基于氟的制冷剂的广泛应用将使燃料废气排放量降低到每年2.3亿加仑。 original text [COLOR=#708090]DuPont, Honeywell Announce Refrigerants Global Joint Development Agreement Low Global Warming Refrigerants for Automobiles Provide More Sustainable Solutions for Air Conditioning Systems WILMINGTON, Del., and MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J., March 29, 2007 – DuPont and Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced a global joint development agreement to accelerate the development and commercialization of next generation, low global warming refrigerants for the automotive air conditioning industry. The new refrigerants would enable automakers to meet new regulations in Europe that require the use of low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants in mobile air conditioning (AC) applications. Today‘s automotive air conditioners use hydrofluorocarbon (HFC)-134a. The new regulation is scheduled to take effect in 2011 for new model automobiles, with the transition complete by 2017. Under the agreement, DuPont and Honeywell will jointly identify, develop, test and qualify new low GWP refrigerants that are cost-effective alternatives to other technologies being considered by the auto industry. Automakers are currently evaluating mobile AC systems that use such technologies. Ideally, automakers are seeking a commercially viable fluorinated gas solution that is compatible with conventional HFC-134a mobile air conditioning system technology and offers a more cost-effective industry transition versus CO2 technology. “Honeywell has a proven track record of developing refrigerant technologies to meet industry and customer requirements,” said Terrence Hahn, vice president and general manager for Honeywell‘s Fluorine Products business. “We look forward to providing a near drop-in replacement that reduces the need for costly system redesign for the automotive industry. For the consumer, we will provide an environmentally friendlier, low-GWP solution without sacrificing comfort or reliability.” “DuPont science and innovation helped ease the transition from chlorofluorocarbons to alternative products for both industry and society. Now we are quickly responding to the global automotive industry‘s request for new refrigerants with lower global warming potential that offer a strong balance of benefits for safety, performance and cost-effectiveness,” said Cynthia C. Green, vice president and general manager —— DuPont Fluoroproducts. “By leveraging DuPont and Honeywell resources, we can expedite product qualification and commercialization to provide a new global industry solution in time to meet regulations and effect an accelerated reduction in greenhouse gas emissions around the world.” DuPont and Honeywell plan to share resources, investment and technology as part of the agreement. The companies will work closely with the automotive industry to qualify a low GWP alternative by mid-2007. According to industry estimates, there are more than 400 million cars with air conditioning systems globally, with each system using between one to two pounds of refrigerant. Air conditioning systems utilizing fluorine-based refrigerants, such as those Honeywell and DuPont are seeking to develop, are more energy efficient than CO2-based air conditioning systems, particularly at high ambient temperature conditions. Based on a test conducted by DuPont comparing mobile AC systems utilizing DuPont‘s low GWP replacement refrigerant and CO2, widespread utilization of a fluorine-based refrigerant could lead to worldwide emissions reduction equivalent to 230 million gallons of fuel per year by 2017.[/COLOR]
