U.S. Refrigerant Recovery & Reclaim Program

Regulatory Update: HCFC Allowances

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 2016, the R-22 allow is 65% less than the 51 million pounds in 2014. The allowance is 18 million pounds.


Final Rule Details can be found here.


Monetize Your R-22 Today

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?

  1. Implement a Refrigerant Management Plan (RMP).
  2. 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.
  3. Stay up to date on regulatory activities including California ARBs Refrigerant Management Program.
  4. 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.

Illegal R-22 Activity & Brand Assurance

The Anti-Counterfeiting Security Shrink Sleeve, together with the Izon™ security label on disposable cylinders (DACs), are efforts we are taking to combat counterfeit and illegal import activity. Take the time to ensure the authenticity of your refrigerant package by using one of the immediate confirmation options.
