The article presents a response from a reader of the journal. The response is to the story that was published in the Nov. 22, 2004. issue of the journal titled, "York Transitions From HCFC-123," a refrigerant option. The person making response seeks to clarify a few points for readers, particularly R-123 availability, environmental impact, and demand. He believes that there will be more than enough R-123 for the long term. The scheduled phaseout dates for R-123 are many years away 2030 in developed countries and 2040 in developing countries. He further added that demand for HCFC-123 chillers is falling globally. He continues to see strong demand for our R-123 chillers, which have the highest efficiency of all options on the market.
