A-Gas is committed to protecting the environment by effectively managing the lifecycle of refrigerants to build a sustainable future.
Refrigerant gas runs through systems that keep our food cold, keep our buildings habitable and, as Halon, is even used to protect aircraft in the event of a fire. But have you ever thought about what happens to the used gas when those systems are no longer required?
This is when there is the greatest risk that the gas could be released into the atmosphere, becoming a contributing factor in accelerating global warming. By using our expertise and approach to the lifecycle management of refrigerant gases, A‑Gas reduces this risk.
For 30 years, through our first-class recovery, reclamation, and repurposing processes, we have been capturing refrigerant gas for future re-use or safe destruction, preventing its harmful release into the atmosphere.
What we do at A‑Gas makes a significant contribution to protecting our planet. Over the last two years alone (2021-2022), when we add all the used refrigerant our expert teams across the globe have recovered, reclaimed or repurposed, its CO2e can be expressed as the equivalent to:
In 2021, our recovery and reclamation activity equates to 1,595,582 cars taken off the road. In 2022, this increased to 1,833,562.
In 2021, our recovery and reclamation activity equates to 107,239,070 trees planted. In 2022, this increased to 123,233,723.
Through the generation of carbon credits, A-Gas helps businesses reduce their carbon footprint
