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.

PureSphera has taken over the operations of Recyclage ÉcoSolutions, capitalizing on the excellent work of its employees, partners and customers to ensure a smooth transition.

CGIH project

In Bécancour, PureSphera is continuing rollout of the Centre de Gestion Intégrée des Halocarbures (CGIH), the only initiative of its kind in North America, which will create more than 70 jobs and investment of $7.4M.

Manitoba’s organizations reduce greenhouse gas emissions

Rural Municipality of Elton, City of Brandon, Bristal Hauling and Mother Earth Recycling got their FreezPonsible certification for recycling optimally refrigeration and cooling appliances. Gases contained in cooling appliances are known GHG that substantially increase global warming.  In addition, CFC and HCFCs (Freon) are depleting the ozone layer. Just on improperly recycled refrigerator generates as much pollution as a car driven 17,000 km in one year!  The company PureSphera, located in Winnipeg, has developed unique solutions to solve this problem. When they reach the end of their useful life cycle, these cooling appliances become waste material. Most of the time, […]

Poor recycling techniques in China are the culprit for the CFC-11 emissions increase

May 25, 2018 Only a week ago, a report was issued that a banned chemical, chlorofluorocarbon (CFC-11), that destroys the ozone layer was being released from somewhere in Asia. Now, an international team of researchers claims to have discovered the source of the CFC-11 emissions. The results have been published in Environmental Science & Technology. The substance in question is a chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) called CFC-11, and it was once used in refrigerators. But in 2006, the production of CFC-11 was banned under the Montreal Protocol, which regulates chemicals that damage the ozone layer. However, on May 16th, Stephen Montzka of the U.S. National […]
