November 16, 2018 - EPA added HFO-1336mzz-Z to the list of compounds excluded from the regulatory definition of volatile organic compounds or VOC. Evidence shows that HFO 1336mzz-Z is negligibly reactive in forming ground-level ozone. This action will allow states to remove regulatory controls on HFO-1336mzz-Z that are part of State Implementation Plans designed to help meet the ground-level ozone standards. HFO-1336mzz-Z is used in a variety of applications as a replacement for foam expansion or blowing agents.
