Multiple news agencies have reported that the German carmaker BMW has decided to pull out from the group initiative looking into testing a new refrigerant to be used in auto air conditioning systems.

According to the outlets covering this story, the program investigating a product developed by DuPont and Honeywell is being tested by a group of automakers before the refrigerant is made available for use in air conditioning systems in autos.

The reports indicate BMW is one out of three automakers that decided to quit participating in the project and develop their own methods of testing. According to a spokesperson, the company is not fully convinced the methods used in the group testing are sufficiently effective.
