Did you know....

Production and importation of HCFC's reduced by a further 16% in 2008 - that's NOW!

It will be illegal to use virgin R22 after 31st December 2009

Do not stock pile virgin gas, it will have to be disposed of!

Recovered HCFCs can either be destroyed or reclaimed for re-use until 2015.

There will be insufficient reclaimed R22 to meet industry requirements.

Remember its not just R22

CFC's - R11, R12, R13, R114, R500, R502, R503

HCFC's - R22, R123, R124, R141b, R142b

Blends containing HCFC's - R401A, R401B, R401C, R402A R402B, R403A, R403B, R405A, R406A, R408A, R409A, R409B, R411A, R411B, R412A, R414A, R414B, R416A, R509A
