At Hudson Technologies, we provide refrigerant management solutions that address the full life cycle of refrigerants – and that means helping protect the environment by avoiding the release of additional and unnecessary GHG emissions.

With the reclamation of millions of lbs of refrigerant a year, as well as our involvement in the destruction of high GWP Ozone Depleting Substances (CFCs), Hudson has successfully avoided the release of the equivalent of over 100 Million tonnes of CO2 to the atmosphere since our inception. We work with a diverse group of entities including large corporations, educational institutions, municipalities, contractors, and property owners to turn what would be considered a liability associated with refrigerants into an opportunity by:

  • Purchasing CFCs (R-12, R-500, R-113, R-114, R-115 and R-11) from aging equipment and stockpiles for top dollar
  • Handling the removal, transportation, and responsible disposal of CFCs through an EPA-approved facility
  • Providing the appropriate documentation that demonstrates the successful destruction of any CFC that contributes to a carbon project.
  • Providing high quality carbon offsets that can be used by entities regulated by the California Air Resources board, the WCI, or US Voluntary carbon programs

The benefits for our customers are three-fold, providing cash back, meeting all refrigerant related regulatory needs and the satisfaction of doing the right thing for the environment.

Other Environmental Efforts

Hudson’s commitment to the environment extends beyond its services. In fact, the company was one of the first refrigerant management companies to participate in the Chicago Climate Exchange and the first ozone depleting substances (ODS) destruction protocol. In 2009, we were part of the Climate Action Reserve working group that developed two comprehensive protocols for quantifying the emissions reductions from destruction of refrigerant gases that are no longer used.

In addition to the ODS destruction protocols, Hudson Technologies was a key stakeholder in the development of the 2015 American Carbon Registry protocol that allows for the development of carbon offsets through the recycling of HFC refrigerants rather than the purchase and use of virgin HFCs.
