Refrigerant Reclaim Australia has taken back and safely disposed of 10,000,000 Kgs of refrigerant
Refrigerant Reclaim Australia (RRA) has reached a significant milestone in protecting the environment by recovering 10,000,000 Kgs of synthetic greenhouse gas refrigerants thanks to licensed refrigeration and air condition technicians throughout Australia. This achievement not only demonstrates RRA’s commitment to reducing emissions from the HVAC sector but highlights the crucial role that the refrigeration industry plays in helping to protect the planet.

Since its inception in 1993, RRA has worked with industry, wholesalers, and refrigerant distributors to collect unwanted ozone-depleting substances and synthetic greenhouse gases in over 500 locations across Australia.

Under the product stewardship program run by RRA to manage used and unwanted refrigerants at the end of their life, thousands of tonnes of CFCs, HCFCs & HFCs have been safely disposed of using Montreal Protocol-approved technologies.

Through a collective effort with the refrigeration industry, RRA has taken back and safely disposed of 10,000,000 Kgs of refrigerant, resulting in significant environmental benefits. This includes the prevention of more than 10 million tonnes of stratospheric ozone from being destroyed and more than 18.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent being prevented from emission.

The milestone serves as a reminder of the key role that individuals and industry play in protecting the planet.

RRA commends the refrigeration and air conditioning technicians for their diligence and recovery efforts and remains committed to its mission of working with the industry to reduce the impact of refrigerant gases on the environment.
