Commission’s Top Scientific Body Concludes Honeywell’s Refrigerant Is Safe

Honeywell (of course) announced on 7 March that the European Commission’s Top Scientific Body Concludes That Honeywell’s Low-Global-Warming Refrigerant Is Safe For Use In Automobiles. Only two days earlier, Bloomberg reported that the same Commission (different DG of course) was about to deliver a statement of objections to Honeywell and DuPont following a three-year investigation into the agreements between the two companies relating to the development of the new refrigerant, HFO-1234yf, which Daimler famously declined to put in its cars - leading to all sorts of problems, about which I wrote last year (and am still writing about, from time to time, this year).

There seems to be no official confirmation of the statement of objections, yet. So I guess I can come back to this story again!
