Carrier ensures CFCs are destroyed

17627298_lUSA: Air conditioning manufacturer Carrier reports that it has prevented 111,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions thanks to its end-of-life refrigerant management programme.

Two years ago Carrier entered into an agreement with San-Francisco-based EOS Climate to ensure that all used CFC refrigerants and their resulting greenhouse gases are destroyed in compliance with standards established by the Climate Action Reserve and the California Air Resources Board.

“Twenty years ago Carrier pioneered the phase-out of legacy refrigerants well in advance of U.S. and international requirements,” said John Mandyck, chief sustainability officer, UTC Building & Industrial Systems. “While that decision set the standard moving forward, I’m proud that the company continued driving toward a more comprehensive solution that incorporates the responsible management of the refrigerants of our past.”
