Refrigerant gas management white paper
Are you venting away profits for no good reason? Learn how most organizations operating refrigerant containing systems blow it with non-effective refrigerant gas tracking and management.
Concerns about ozone depletion and copious amounts of carbon being dumped into the atmosphere caused governments around the world to take strong, immediate action to prevent further damage to our environment. It's a work in progress as we all know. In the United States, this resulted in the U.S. Clean Air Act (Section 608) and further amendments to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) refrigerant gas regulations that were put in place since the early 1970s.
In a short period of time refrigerants, used in many of our everyday applications and products, were labeled as federally controlled substances. Facilities containing refrigerants have a long list of responsibilities concerning refrigerant management as defined by the U.S. Clean Air Act, The Montreal Protocol, and the Post-Kyoto regulations. Combined these are thorny issues.
Learn how you can thrive in a carbon constrained world while you're required by environmental law to manage your refrigerants – to the pound. Collecting, organizing, and reporting of refrigerant usage is challenging, loaded with complexity, often system auditing is confusing, and it remains difficult to remain in compliance with a regulations that are constantly changing.
