Recycling of refrigeration and air conditioning appliances

Halocarbons contribute to the main environmental problems that concern governments and environmentalists: climate change and depletion of the ozone layer.

By joining the Freezponsible recovery program, municipalities and RCMs ensure that end-of-life cooling appliances collected in their jurisdiction will receive the best possible treatment for our environment. Our cutting-edge technology greatly surpasses environmental requirements for managing halocarbons, hazardous materials and recycling.

We also recycle 96% of the materials from these appliances: steel, aluminum, copper, plastic, oil and mercury

By reducing the effects of halocarbons on global warming and/or the ozone layer, PureSphera also achieves emission reductions that result in very high quality carbon credits for local and international markets.
