Refrigeration and air conditioning is a critical part of the way we live. A-Gas plays a crucial role in this and it is likely that you come into contact with our products every day– at the supermarket, in your car, your office and your home – potentially without ever realising it.
A-Gas’ role in society and the economy is greater than just supplying refrigerant. We are a company with a purpose; a purpose that our worldwide teams are committed to and one that is lived by all our stakeholders:
“To protect and enhance the environment by reducing global warming gases and preventing their release into the atmosphere.”
This unwavering commitment puts A-Gas at the forefront of our industry in terms of sustainability and supporting the circular economy. We are continuously focused on how our products can impact the planet and how our services and expertise can protect our environment. Our aim is to make a difference, not just today, but every day, by delivering environmentally conscious solutions to serve the world’s evolving needs.
The climate is changing, and we all have a part to play in protecting our planet. Achieving net zero is an incredibly ambitious target that we cannot achieve alone, but together, we can.
Refrigerant gas runs through systems that keep our food cold, keep our buildings habitable, and is even used to protect aircraft in the event of a fire. But have you ever thought about what happens to this gas when those systems are no longer required?
This is when there is the greatest risk that the used 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 gases, A-Gas reduces this risk.
For almost 30 years, through our first-class recovery, reclamation and repurposing processes, we have been capturing this gas for destruction or future re-use, preventing its harmful release into the atmosphere.
What we do at A-Gas makes a significant contribution to protecting our planet. On an annual basis, if we were to add together all of the used gas that our expert teams across the globe recover, reclaim or repurpose, its CO2 could be expressed as the equivalent to:
The EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator was used to calculate our CO2 equivalent contributions above. This calculator is a useful resource for those looking to understand their annual emission measurement.
