On October 16, 2014, the EPA released the Final HCFC Allocation Rule that states that the supply of the R-22 refrigerant will be reduced by around 40% in 2015. Coming from a production of 51 million pounds in 2014, we are looking at only 22 million pounds of R-22 refrigerant supply by the end of 2015. We will be witnessing this declining trend throughout the years to come, until the target of zero consumption of R-22 is reached in 2020.

Meanwhile, what should you do with your recovered or installed bases for R-22? You can have them reclaimed or recovered, and even monetized. It is important for you to come up with a Refrigerant Management Plan (RMP) where you can include details on what to do with your recovered R-22.

Some of the most common R-22 recovery services include:

    • Re-use
    • Return for reclaim
    • Return for money / buy back

When you no longer need your R-22, you can immediately get in touch with us so we can discuss your options for recovery and removal. It is of utmost importance to hire the assistance of licensed professionals for this procedure because the risk of contamination and other health hazards are very high. There are also stricter policies on refrigerant recovery and any unapproved R-22 activity will be sanctioned by the EPA and is an illegal act punishable by law.

The most important aspect of R-22 recovery is EPA compliance, so talk to us about the refrigerant recovery services that apply to you and we will be more than happy to send a specialized team of licensed individuals who can do the work for you. You don’t have to go into the trouble of checking off the long and technical list provided by the EPA for compliance. Our knowledgeable and skilled team are equipped and ready to do the job, hence minimizing the risks of serious health problems and contamination.
