|New European ODS Regulations|
|The current EC Ozone Regulation has been reviewed during 2009. A new regulation has been agreed by EC member states and is due to come in to force on January 1st 2010. The proposed new legislation includes an important distinction between recycled and reclaimed gases.|
Recycled HCFCs - recovered HCFC gas that has been subject only to a basic cleaning process may only be used by either the undertaking which carried out the recovery or the undertaking for which the recovery was carried out. Recycled HCFCs may not be placed on the market.
Reclaimed HCFCs - recovered HCFC gas that has been chemically reprocessed to a specified standard may be placed on the wider market and used by undertakings other than the original contractor and owner.
Harp International is one of a small number of companies in the UK with reclamation facilities and can offer a range of solutions for the phase-out.
