MISSISSAUGA, Ontario — Refrigerant Management Canada (RMC) announced that it has successfully verified and registered 170,000 ozone depleting substances (ODS)-derived registered emission reductions on the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) reductions registry. This is the first successful verification of an ODS destruction project in Canada.

Since 2000, RMC has diverted the release of more than 2.7 million kilograms of refrigerant from the atmosphere. The initial verification of this achievement involved the successful quantification, registration, and serialization of the ODS sourced by RMC from across Canada and destroyed at the Swan Hills Treatment Centre, Swan Hills, Alberta.
