BOWLING GREEN, Ohio - In conjunction with Pan Gulf Industrial Systems, RemTec International announced it will commence halon reclamation and banking operations in the Middle East as of November. According to RemTec, its halocarbon reclamation facility in Saudi Arabia is the first of its kind in the region.

Richard Marcus, RemTec president and CEO, said, “This facility, with its investment in advanced technologies and its central location, is ideally suited to provide testing and reclamation services for commercial and military clients throughout the Middle East region and beyond.”

The newly constructed 30,000-square-foot facility is part of a three-phase program to contain and manage Class I and II Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) and other halocarbons.

The initial phase will provide halon reclamation and banking capabilities on a regional basis to petrochemical companies and other end users. The second phase will expand these services to include reclamation and banking of all ODS including chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), as well as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) that are high in global warming potential (GWP). The third phase will install advanced systems that safely destroy all of these substances and other environmentally-hazardous wastes using patented Plascon Plasma Arc Destruction Technology.
