WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. — Hudson Technologies Inc., a provider of sustainable refrigerant products and services to the HVACR industry — and one of the nation’s largest refrigerant reclaimers — announced that its partner AprilAire, a provider of professional grade healthy air solutions, has fully transitioned to the exclusive use of reclaimed refrigerants in its refrigeration systems. Earlier this year, the two companies announced their collaboration in support of healthy air initiatives, with AprilAire committing to being an early adopter for the incorporation of reclaimed refrigerant into its products and teaming with Hudson as its exclusive supplier of reclaimed refrigerants.
Brian F. Coleman, president and chief executive officer of Hudson Technologies commented, “With our industry-leading reclamation technology and long-standing commitment to responsible, sustainable refrigerant management, we’re delighted to work with AprilAire and other industry partners, as they make the shift to creating more environmentally friendly products that operate using reclaimed refrigerant. We applaud AprilAire for its advanced and aggressive transition to the use of 100% reclaimed refrigerant in its products as an early adopter of the CARB Regulation Order for Certified Reclaimed Refrigerant Use Requirements. CARB calls for the use of at least 10% reclaimed refrigerant in equipment coming off the factory floor, and AprilAire is an industry forerunner with its evolution to exclusively incorporating reclaimed refrigerant into its products. We believe our partnership, with its focus on recovering, reclaiming and reusing refrigerants, not only reduces waste and air pollution, but also maximizes the economic value of refrigerants.”
“We chose to partner with Hudson Technologies due to their proven commitment to sustainability and technical leadership in recovering, reclaiming, and reusing refrigerants to reduce waste and greenhouse gas emissions. This is another important milestone as we implement innovative solutions to make our products more environmentally friendly,” commented Jimmy Pendley, president of AprilAire.
