HFO-1234yf is a low GWP refrigerant developed for automotive air-conditioning (A/C) systems to replace HFC-134a. Industry-wide risk assessments found that HFO-1234yf can be safely used in mobile A/C applications with results previously presented. Various global automotive OEMs have transitioned to HFO-1234yf at selected manufacturing sites in different regions. This paper documents critical steps for successful transition, including installation, commissioning and startup of storage and vehicle charging facilities. Observations will also be shared concerning potential pit-falls that have been encountered during new refrigerant implementation at these sites. © 2016 Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan, Inc.

"… News of the lead and arsenic contamination in East Chicago has thrown the neighborhood into disarray, while ARCO and DuPont are long gone from the area," said attorney Thomas Zimmerman, who is representing the plaintiffs, in a statement. "The polluters must take responsibility and pay for the damages they have caused.""
