PureSphera picks up and recycles refrigeration and air conditioning appliance, to destroy harmful gases and reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The CFCs and Freon contained in cooling equipment increase global warming and destroy the ozone layer.
More than 85% of the gas in cooling coils and insulating foam in Quebec continues to be released into the atmosphere!
A single improperly recycled refrigerator generates as much pollution as a car driven 17,000 km in one year!
PureSphera has developed unique solutions to solve this problem. We are the only company in Canada that can capture halocarbons from insulating foam.

Recycle cold appliance and reduce GHG

PureSphera works in conjunction with municipalities, appliance retailers, refrigeration specialists, electrical utilities, as well as metal and automotive recyclers to eliminate halocarbons, improve energy efficiency and recover and reuse raw materials.

Our activities supported the first 100% Quebec transaction in the regulated carbon offset market.

FreezPonsible certifications in Manitoba

PureSphera congratulates RM of Springfield, RM of Mountain and City of Steinbach for their FreezPonsible certification.
