Six Pillars of Lifecycle Refrigerant Management

Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) – LRM: The 90 Billion Ton Opportunity

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – October 20, 2022 – Our CEO and President Brian Coleman had the honor of being a Technical Advisor to the report and was able to share his expertise on how we can minimize refrigerant leaks and maximize end-of-life recovery and reclamation.

In October of 2022, the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), the Institute for Governance & Sustainable Development (IGSD), and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) co-authored The 90 Billion Ton Opportunity: Lifecycle Refrigerant Management Report. This report lays out tangible interventions for federal and state policymakers, major corporations, and equipment owners and operators to minimize refrigerant leaks and maximize end-of-life recovery and reclamation. Embracing Lifecycle Refrigerant Management globally can prevent fluorocarbon emissions equal to 90 billion metric tons of CO2 this century—nearly three full years of global energy-related carbon dioxide emissions today.

Lifecycle Refrigerant Management (LRM) is a circular economy solution leading the path to net-zero emissions in an efficient and achievable manner. To take on the responsibility of reducing our emissions, adopting Lifecycle Refrigerant Management practices will help us reach our goal faster; leading the industry on the journey to net zero.
