R123 is a single component HFC refrigerant (Dichlorotrifluoroethane) replacing R11 as the refrigerant of choice for air conditioning systems and centrifugal chillers. Despite its very low GWP it is still a HCFC with an ozone depleting potential and is therefore being phased out in Australia
HCFC’s are commonly accepted as having an overall detrimental effect on the environment through both their ozone depletion potential and global warming potential and consequently are being phased out completely. Exceeding the requirements of the Montreal Protocol, the phase out was implemented in Australia under the Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Act 1989.
