The National Hockey League (NHL) and The Chemours Company announced a multi-year partnership focused on providing Opteon sustainable refrigerant solutions to ice rinks across North America. Opteon refrigerants are non-ozone depleting and have a low global warming potential (GWP). Many community rinks currently use HCFC-22, which is being phased out pursuant to the Montreal Protocol, or HFCs, which are being phased down through the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol.
