The Final HCFC Allocation Rule impacting the amount of virgin R-22 refrigerant that can be produced went into effect January 1, 2015. This is the last set of R-22 annual allowances for the 2015-2019 timeframe before reaching zero in 2020.
In 2018, the R-22 allowance is 9 million pounds. This is 31% less than the 2017 allowances.
Your recovered and installed base of refrigerant R-22 is an asset. Contact the Chemours Reclaim Manager to learn about options and proper handling of your R-22.
What can you do?
Manage your installed R-22. Chemours has options for optimizing your recovered R-22: (1) re-use; (2) return for reclaim/reuse; or (3) return for BuyBack. When you no longer need R-22 to service your equipment, contact the Chemours Reclaim Manager to discuss options to monetize your asset.
Retrofit from R-22 to Freon™ MO99 in air conditioning and Opteon™ XP40 in commercial refrigeration to extend the life of your equipment.
Chemours guarantees that all recovered refrigerant is handled in an environmentally responsible manner according to the EPA Reclaimer Certification Program under Section 608 of the Clean Air Act.
