SAE International and Global OEMs Looking to Create Research Group to Further Study 1234yf Refrigerant

WARRENDALE, Pa., Oct. 18, 2012 – SAE International is working with an international group of automobile manufacturers (OEM) to investigate the formation of a new Cooperative Research Program (CRP) regarding 1234yf refrigerant.

The formation of the group is in response to a Daimler AG press release on Sept. 25 that questioned the safe use of the refrigerant. The CRP will technically evaluate the findings referred to in the release.

SAE International has hosted an organizational meeting to discuss a preliminary scope of research and is actively soliticiting OEMs to formally join the new CRP. Upon approval of the OEMs to proceed with the CRP and finalize the scope of research, SAE International and the CRP will commence research activities.

OEMs wishing to join should contact Gary Pollak at 724-772-7196 or
