Daikin VRV units with reclaimed refrigerant now available across Europe
Daikin Europe is expanding its circular economy programme to all VRV units manufactured and sold across Europe. The L∞P by Daikin programme saves 250,000 kg of virgin refrigerant from being produced yearly by giving Europeans access to recovered and reclaimed refrigerant. Independent certification guarantees that the reclaimed refrigerant fully meets quality standards and is correctly allocated to certified L∞P by Daikin VRV units. Daikin plans to expand the programme to other products and refrigerants as part of its global refrigerant policy.

Daikin, a market leader in heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC-R), is today announcing an expansion of its L∞P by Daikin circular economy programme for refrigerants. The key principles of the programme are simple: Daikin recovers refrigerants from existing systems through its installer network, upcycles and reclaims them to virgin quality, and then allocates the reclaimed refrigerants to new VRV systems manufactured and sold across Europe.

The programme is a perfect example of a circular economy, leveraging the entire Daikin ecosystem and its business partners across Europe.

L∞P by Daikin was launched in 2019 for selected Daikin VRV units, but thanks to the programme’s success, the company is now expanding it to all VRV units produced and sold in Europe from November 2020. Specifically, L∞P by Daikin will now cover all EU member states, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Iceland, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

In total, L∞P by Daikin saves 250,000 kg of virgin refrigerant being produced yearly. Since its launch, L∞P by Daikin has proved popular in the European market. The programme makes it easier than ever before to reuse refrigerants, and has been adopted by companies such as Action. The Dutch retail chain with over 1,400 stores across Europe uses reclaimed refrigerant from their old stores in new or refurbished stores.

“L∞P by Daikin is a perfect example of a circular economy,” says George Dimou, VRV product manager at Daikin Europe. “We work every day to make our products as energy-efficient as possible, improve the circularity of our products and to motivate all of our partners and customers to join forces to reduce carbon emissions. The responsible use of materials is an integral part of this ambition. L∞P by Daikin showcases just that. By eliminating resource depletion, we save tonnes of virgin refrigerant and cut down our impact on the environment.”
