U.S. Refrigerant Recovery & Reclaim Program

Regulatory Update: HCFC Allowances

The EPA Administrator signed the Final HCFC Allocation Rule on October 16, 2014.

The result is a 57% reduction in the amount of virgin R-22 supply that will be available in 2015 or 22 million pounds down from the 51 million pounds in 2014. Beginning in 2016, there will be declining consumption allowances each year until zero consumption allowances starting in 2020.

Your recovered and installed base of refrigerant R-22 is an asset. Contact the DuPont Reclaim Manager to learn about options and proper handling of your R-22 at 302-999-5361.

What can you do?

  1. Implement a Refrigerant Management Plan (RMP).
  2. Manage your installed R-22. DuPont has options for optimizing your recovered R-22: (1) re-use; (2) return for reclaim; and (3) return for BuyBack. When you no longer need R-22 to service the same owner’s equipment, contact the DuPont Reclaim Manager to discuss options to optimize your asset.
  3. Stay up to date on regulatory activities including California ARBs Refrigerant Management Program, that instituted new rules on March 1, 2014.
  4. Retrofit from R-22 to reduce cost for new equipment when your equipment has additional life to it. The DuPont leading no-oil-change R-22 alternative is ISCEON® MO99™ :
    • Behaves the same as R-22
    • Proven performance globally
    • Easy switch from R-22
    • Use the recovered R-22 for re-use, reclaim, get value to lower your overall retrofit cost

DuPont 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
