Daikin Malaysia has launched an initiative to collect refrigerant from installers as part of a pilot recovery and recycling initiative.

The pilot project campaign – Save the Earth: Exchange for the future generation – is a collaboration with reclamation and recovery centres capable of cleaning and restoring refrigerant to “as new” quality for reuse, as well as correctly treating and disposing of old units.

Daikin Malaysia through its affiliate Daikin Malaysia Sales and Service Sdn Bhd (DMSS) will recover refrigerants from end-users for proper handling and recycling at Daikin’s collection centre in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

The recovered refrigerants will undergo processing by a licensed facility, where all impurities will be meticulously removed, thereby restoring the refrigerants to their purest state in accordance with the standards outlined in ARI-700 (purity >99.5%).

The old air conditioning units will then be sent to licensed recycle facility to ensure a sustainable e-waste management. Initially launched as a pilot program in the Klang Valley, the collection of used refrigerants will be expanded to encompass other states of Malaysia through the establishment of new collection centres in coming months.

DMSS and AMSS will also conduct training sessions for installers, aiming to equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills for proper refrigerant handling.
