MISSISSAUGA, Ontario - Refrigerant Management Canada (RMC) officially launched its new and improved website: RMC said the updated website more accurately reflects the current branding and positioning of this environmental care program.

According to RMC, the new website is more visually engaging, user-friendly, and contains up-to-date information about the program for contractors and other stakeholders, including the general public. Visitors to the site are greeted with an “Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) Counter” on the homepage. This feature tallies, in kilograms, the current quantity of environmentally damaging surplus refrigerant waste that has been safely collected and destroyed by the RMC program since its inception in 2000.

“This particular feature will allow our stakeholders to track our progress as we approach the 2 million kilogram milestone,” said Dennis Larson, chair of the RMC program.

Two other odometers are also featured on the new site - one that reports the program’s efforts in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and another that reports the reduction in ozone depletion potential (ODP).

Contractors, wholesalers, and collection service providers will benefit from the new “Members Area,” which contains operating guidelines, pertinent updates, templates, and training modules. Also featured on the site is a comprehensive information section that outlines the formal process for the collection, transportation, storage, and disposal of ozone depleting refrigerants, which is fashioned after the current reclamation system in the industry.

RMC noted that the website is intended for the general public as well as those in the industry. It is a platform to educate, inform, and engage the public about the RMC program and the dangers of surplus refrigerant waste. Also, it communicates to contractors and wholesalers the importance and benefits of being involved with the program.
