PEARL RIVER, N.Y. - Hudson Technologies Inc. opened a new 60,000-square-foot warehouse and reclamation facility in Champaign, Ill. The new facility complements Hudson’s existing 50,000-square-foot facility and will increase the company’s production capacity and processing efficiency for the reclamation of refrigerants.

“Hudson is an established leader in the reclamation industry, and to maintain and strengthen that leadership position we needed to increase our reclamation capacity in preparation for what is estimated to be a nearly four-fold increase in the reclamation of HCFC [hydrochlorofluorocarbons] refrigerants,” said Kevin Zugibe, chairman and CEO of Hudson Technologies.

According to Zugibe, the upcoming Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) phaseout of HCFCs will reduce the supply of new HCFC refrigerants by more than 60 percent from current levels. As a result, the EPA has estimated that as of Jan. 1, 2010, the demand for HCFC refrigerants needed to service existing equipment will exceed the available supply of new HCFC refrigerants by approximately 20 percent. It is expected that this supply gap will be filled with reclaimed and recycled refrigerant.
