Said to be the world’s first, it contained HFO blend refrigerant, Solstice L-41

According to a report which appeared in Heating and Ventilating.net, dated October 9, 2012, Honeywell has collaborated with Haier Group to introduce what it claims is the world’s first HFO refrigerant air conditioner. The report added that the demonstration unit was previewed at the Chillventa show and avowedly contained Honeywell’s new HFO blend refrigerant, Solstice L-41.

Honeywell said that the refrigerant offered high cooling performance in all regions without the increase in power consumption seen with R-32 and R-410A when the ambient temperature increases, the news item elaborated. It is also said to have a GWP of less than 500, which the company claimed was significantly lower than the currently used refrigerants like R-410A with a GWP of 2088 and HFC32, with a GWP of 675, HeatingandVentilating.net quoted.
