At Hudson Technologies, we provide refrigerant management solutions that address the full life cycle of refrigerants – and that means helping protect the environment by avoiding the release of additional and unnecessary GHG emissions.
The environmental benefit of CFC end of life management is clear. The destruction of just 1 lbs of R-12 refrigerant has the same GHG emission reduction as taking 1 car off the road for an entire year.
- CFCs released into the atmosphere contribute to both the buildup of Greenhouse Gasses and the destruction of the Ozone Layer
- By reclaiming or destroying used CFC’s Hudson ensures they are not released to atmosphere
- CFC’s are reclaimed to AHRI specification for reuse, supporting operating chillers until their end of service life
- CFCs that are not intended for reuse are destroyed
With the reclamation of millions of lbs of refrigerant a year, as well as our involvement in the destruction of high GWP Ozone Depleting Substances (CFCs), Hudson has successfully avoided the release of the equivalent of over 100 Million tonnes of CO2 to the atmosphere since our inception. We work with a diverse group of entities including large corporations, educational institutions, municipalities, contractors, and property owners to turn what would be considered a liability associated with refrigerants into an opportunity by:
- Purchasing CFCs (R-12, R-500, R-113, R-114, R-115 and R-11) from aging equipment and stockpiles for top dollar
- Handling the removal, transportation, and responsible disposal of CFCs through an EPA-approved facility
- Providing the appropriate documentation that demonstrates the successful destruction of any CFC that contributes to a carbon project
- Providing high quality carbon offsets that can be used by entities regulated by the California Air Resources board, the WCI, or US Voluntary carbon programs
The benefits for our customers are three-fold, providing cash back, meeting all refrigerant related regulatory needs and the satisfaction of doing the right thing for the environment.
