Title: Flammable Refrigerant Charge Limits: Can or Should These Limits Be Higher?

A workshop was held to discuss different aspects of the application of flammable refrigerants in refrigeration and air conditioning equipment. The participants included stakeholders from industry, regulatory bodies, and the scientific community. The goal was to solicit feedback on the critical scientific, regulatory and practical issues for safe employment of flammable refrigerants in heating, ventilation, air- conditioning and refrigeration equipment. This paper reports on the outcome of the workshop and presents review of relevant past studies when available. The reported outcome may serve well as a guide to further research needed as adoption of flammable refrigerants increases.
