AHAM Awarded Grant From EPA

Washington, DC The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers
has obtained from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency a grant
that will support AHAM’s research on emissions of blowing agents
from materials used in refrigerator/freezers.

AHAM officials said the EPA grant will support ongoing research
efforts by the association’s Appliance Research Consortium (ARC),
which is co-funding the study. The ARC includes representatives
from GE Appliances,

Sub-Zero Freezer Co., Amana and Whirlpool Corp., among other
appliance manufacturers.

Blowing agents used in the polyurethane foam insulation found in
refrigerator/freezers can contribute to global warming, the
Washington, DC-based AHAM noted.
