PEARL RIVER, NY – DECEMBER 15, 2015 – Hudson Technologies (NASDAQ: HDSN) announced its support for the recent initiatives that have emerged from the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Paris, which concluded December 11, as well as the annual meeting of the parties of the Montreal Protocol that took place in Dubai during November 2015.
Kevin Zugibe, Chairman and CEO of Hudson Technologies, stated, “We applaud the progress made at the recent Paris Conference as well as the agreements that came out of the annual meeting of the parties of the Montreal Protocol earlier this fall. In Paris, the international community set ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets and we stand ready to do our part to advance these goals. By promoting the use of reclaimed refrigerant – cleaning and reusing refrigerant from the installed base- we can help to limit the emissions from these potent global warming gases, which is a significant and immediate step toward addressing global climate change. Likewise, in Dubai, progress was made toward reaching an international agreement to amend the Montreal Protocol to phase-down, and ultimately phase-out, production of new hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). We will continue to work with the State Department and other partners to push forward these important initiatives to combat global warming.
“We are committed to doing our part to curb the emission of greenhouse gases by educating our customers and the marketplace about our reclamation capabilities and the benefits from the use of reclaimed refrigerants. We believe our proprietary technology, longstanding industry relationships and proven distribution network position us to meet the needs of our customers as they adapt to ongoing changes in the industry.”
