Pioneers in HVAC sustainable measures

  • Hudson is widely regarded as experts in reclamation
  • Among the first companies to participate in the Chicago Climate Exchange and the first ozone depleting substances (ODS) destruction protocol
  • Member of the 2009 Climate Action Reserve working group to develop two comprehensive protocols for quantifying the emissions reductions from destruction of obsolete refrigerants
  • Key stakeholder in the 2015 American Carbon Registry protocol allowing for the development of carbon offsets through the recycling of HFC refrigerants rather than the purchase and use of virgin HFCs

Ongoing momentum for refrigerant phaseout

CO2 Reduction

Leading carbon offset project developer

Through a partnership with Bluesource, the nation’s leading carbon offset developer and retailer, Hudson and Bluesource work together initiating carbon projects to develop and market high quality, voluntary carbon offsets resulting from the reclamation of HFC refrigerants. We work across the country using the American Carbon Registry’s Certified Reclaimed HFC Refrigerants protocol.

Due to the availability of inexpensive virgin HFCs from overseas, HFC refrigerants have historically had a low level of reclamation when compared to other refrigerant types. Hudson believes there is an opportunity to quickly and cost-effectively reclaim HFC refrigerants far beyond current reclaim levels.

Executed in advance of any regulatory requirements, these projects encourage the acceleration of GHG emission reductions from the refrigerant industry, which Project Drawdown (a leading Climate Change Solutions Non-profit) identified as one of the top solutions to address global climate change.
