Hudson Technologies, Inc., a provider of innovative and sustainable refrigerant products and services to the HVACR industry and one of the nation’s largest refrigerant reclaimers, and AprilAire, a provider of professional-grade healthy air solutions for homes, announced they will work together to meet the requirements of the recently finalized California Air Resources Board (CARB) Regulation Order for Reclaimed Refrigerant Use for Manufacturers of AC Equipment. In 2022, under the partnership, Hudson will supply reclaimed refrigerant to AprilAire for use in its range of healthy IAQ solutions.

In the spirit of supporting healthy air initiatives, AprilAire will be an early adopter, leveraging Hudson’s proven expertise in refrigerants, to incorporate reclaimed refrigerant into its products. AprilAire will be the first Hudson OEM to meet the new CARB regulation order, setting the pace for the industry.

“Hudson was founded on a commitment to sustainability, and we are thrilled to further strengthen our long-term partnership with AprilAire as it leads the way using reclaimed refrigerant for its Healthy Air Solutions. Together, our focus on recovering, reclaiming, and reusing refrigerants reduces waste and greenhouse gas emissions, and creates maximum economic value for used refrigerants. We look forward to working with AprilAire to support their reclaimed refrigerant needs,” said Brian F. Coleman, president and CEO of Hudson Technologies.

“Our partnership with Hudson Technologies supports our efforts to work with leading innovators, developing new approaches to providing environmentally friendly products that help improve air quality inside as well as outside the home,” added Dale Philippi, president and CEO of AprilAire. “Hudson’s expertise and support made it possible for us to advance our timeline to adopt the use of reclaimed refrigerant.”
