  author={Osamu Kataoka and Masanori Yoshizawa},
Although hydrocarbons and lower GWP HFCs are flammable, they are preferable to high GWP HFCs from the perspective of mitigating climate change. Appropriate standards are necessary to utilize these refrigerants so that their flammability risks are minimized. Although standards for the use of flammable refrigerants exist, some reports indicate that the refrigerants can sometimes be ignited even at levels which satisfy the standards. In addition, the theoretical background of these standards is… CONTINUE READING
