As refrigerants phaseout, Hudson Technologies continues to support and sustain the install base demand. Using a systems original design refrigerant lowers operating costs, maintains efficiency and reduces energy usage.

While the U.S Environment Protection Agency (EPA) phased out the virgin production and importation of R-22, rest assured that R-22 remains legal to use and available long after January 1, 2020. Need independent proof? Check out this EPA brochure detailing the facts about R-22.

The truth about R-22 now and in the future:

  • R-22 is 100% legal to buy, sell.
  • Only virgin manufacture and import of R22 was phased out.
  • Well maintained systems can last 25 years or more.
  • Systems that are designed for R-22 work best with R-22.
  • R-22 is the most widely used refrigerant in North America.
  • R-22 is in residential systems, businesses, campuses, industrial sites – just about everywhere!
  • As of January 1, 2020, no new R-22 manufactured or imported into the U.S. will be allowed onto the market.
  • R-22 can and should be reclaimed (per U.S. EPA regulations) or used from existing stocks.
  • In 2020, despite the virgin manufacturing ban R-22 will still be the most widely used refrigerant in the U.S.
