The Arkema group was created in October 2004, following the reorganization of Total’s Chemicals branch. Thanks to innovation, targeted acquisitions and investments in emerging countries, it has become a recognized world player in the field of specialty chemicals.

France’s leading chemicals producer, Arkema is aiming to become one of the global leaders in specialty chemicals. With its 14,000 employees and 90 industrial sites in 40 countries, Arkema has a revenue of €6.1 billion.

The refrigeration and air conditioning markets are constantly being transformed due to changing regulations related to the fight against the destruction of the ozone layer and global warming. The Arkema group has always anticipated these changes and has developed new fluids to reduce the impact on the environment.

The Arkema group is the world’s co-leader in fluorinated gases and has a complete range of refrigerant fluids. Its products are designed for low and medium temperature air conditioning and refrigeration systems (industrial, commercial, domestic and public transportation).
