How will the Australian Carbon Tax effect Refrigerant pricing?
The new Carbon Tax is due to commence on the 1st of July 2012. The price per tonne of synthetic greenhouse gas will be based on the carbon price and the global warming potential for each gas relative to carbon dioxide.
|Atmospheric Lifetime (yrs)||12||14||40.36||15.657||16.95||<1|
