PEARL RIVER, N.Y. - Hudson Technologies Inc., a leading refrigerant services company, has become an Energy Star® Service and Product Provider Partner. Energy Star is a voluntary program run by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Hudson will now begin offering its performance optimization services, designed to improve the operating efficiency of refrigeration systems, under the Energy Star banner to industrial and commercial companies.

Chief executive officer Kevin Zugibe, P.E., commented, "As an Energy Star Service and Product Provider Partner, we will combine Hudson's unique offerings and experienced staff with the significant resources developed by the EPA for this program. Our goal will be to help industrial and commercial entities identify energy-efficient solutions that provide significant savings while protecting the environment."

According to the company, Hudson's performance optimization program is a unique and innovative system for improving the efficiency of industrial and commercial refrigeration systems. The program, for which Hudson was awarded a patent in 2003, uses a computer model to determine component as well as overall chiller system efficiency. Hudson then integrates the program with its proprietary RefrigerantSide® Services to improve the operations of its customers' refrigeration systems.
