Fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-gases), which are widely used in heat pumps, air conditioning and refrigeration equipment, account for a growing proportion of EU greenhouse - gas emissions. In 2012, the European Commission proposed a new regulation to rein in the use of F-gases in the EU. Parliament and Council reached a trilogue agreement on the proposal in December 2013.
