Carrier And EOS Climate Offer Sustainable End-of-Life Refrigerant Management Program

Stocks in this article: UTX

FARMINGTON, Conn., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Carrier, the world's leader in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, and EOS Climate, a San Francisco-based company dedicated to protecting the environment via collection and destruction of ozone depleting substances (ODS),  announce an innovative program to ensure responsible end-of-life management of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC)-based used refrigerants.  The program brings sustainable technology and cost savings to commercial and industrial organizations. Carrier is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

Typically, when CFC-based chillers are upgraded or replaced, the refrigerant inside is extracted, reclaimed and resold. This new program provides a sustainable alternative to this process enabling refrigerants, such as CFC-11, 12, 113, 114, 115 and 500, to be destroyed in a controlled, effective and accountable manner. The program ensures that refrigerants will not leak with continued reuse.

"Carrier is a natural leader in providing sustainable technology and developing responsible processes that preserve the world we live in tomorrow," said John Mandyck, chief sustainability officer, UTC Climate, Controls & Security.  "Proper refrigerant destruction is another way for companies  to lead the world to a sustainable future."  Mandyck noted that the change-out of older CFC chillers to newer, more energy efficient technologies can also save building operating costs while lowering the environmental impact of energy demand.  Carrier's partnership with EOS provides incentives that can help acquire more energy efficient solutions.

Through the program, destroyed CFC refrigerants are verified by a third party and are registered under the California Air Resources Board, the agency overseeing California's groundbreaking carbon reduction program.  All completed projects receive full refrigerant destruction and carbon credit documentation.

"EOS Climate is proud to partner with Carrier to offer commercial and industrial organizations an innovative and sustainable solution to end-of-life refrigerant management," said Matt Jones, CEO, EOS Climate.

The program is part of EOS Climate's Refrigerant Revolution , a multi-industry stewardship system revolutionizing refrigerant management at end-of-life. Under this system, organizations have the opportunity to generate economic value from used refrigerants and equipment upgrades while moving beyond compliance requirements towards complete lifecycle management.
