CANADA: A-Gas, the UK-based supplier of refrigerants and refrigerant solutions, is to build its first refrigerant recovery and reclamation facility in Canada.
This new facility in Hamilton, Ontario, is scheduled to begin operations in the fourth quarter of this year. It will be the fourth A-Gas refrigerant processing plant in North America.
The new site will have the capability to process and clean recovered refrigerant from the local market. Used refrigerant sent to the facility will undergo chemical analysis at the onsite laboratory and will be reclaimed to AHRI-700 standards.
A-Gas already has some strong relationships within Canada, having participated in the reclaim R22 market for several years.
“The recent implementation of the HFC allowance system in Canada will bring new challenges and opportunities in the Canadian market for real change,” commented A-Gas Canada business director Jim Flowers.
