The Chemours Company announced an alliance with Bohn de Mexico, a commercial and industrial refrigeration equipment manufacturing company with a presence in Latin America.
As part of the alliance, Bohn de Mexico will adopt Chemours non-ozone depleting and low global warming potential refrigerants for its new line of Bohn Ecoflex condensing units. Chemours is based in Wilmington and has a research center in Newark.
“Today, users in the refrigeration industry demand efficient and affordable solutions that comply with current environmental regulations and support them in meeting their sustainability goals,” said Miguel Escamilla, Chemours’ Opteon Refrigerants Development Leader for Mexico CAC and the Andean region. “The transition to the use of low GWP refrigerants is one of the trends that will define the present and future sustainability of the HVACR industry in Mexico and the world. We are excited to provide Bohn de Mexico with our Opteon XL refrigerant solutions for their new line of Ecoflex refrigeration systems.”
This new equipment will enable an easier transition to sustainable technologies by reducing the need for high investment, operating costs for conversion, and adjustment to all store sizes and refrigeration requirements.
The partnership between Bohn and Chemours will also ensure the availability of replacement products at the various locations where the systems will be installed.
In addition, Chemours continues to invest in the expansion of its Opteon production capacity to help meet growing demand. When Chemours opened its Corpus Christi, TX facility in June 2019, it more than tripled the company’s Opteon capacity. The investment, along with other projects, will further increase Opteon capacity by approximately 40%.
