A-Gas has completed the construction of its latest refrigerant separation towers at its Rhome, Texas plant, located outside of Dallas/Fort Worth.
The multi-million-dollar project, which began last year, will more than double the separation capacity at the site and substantially increase the quantity of reclaimed refrigerants available from A-Gas.
The demand for reclaimed refrigerants in the US is expected to grow following the passing of the AIM Act for the phase down of HFCs and the expectation that the US will now ratify the Kigali Amendment.
President of A-Gas in the Americas, Mike Armstrong, said the new equipment will enable reclamation of mixed refrigerants received from customers across the US.
“This will ensure that even the most complicated mixes of refrigerants, including HCFCs, HFCs, and HFOs, can be separated into their components and brought back to industry standards,” he said.
The company’s vice president, Taylor Ferranti, said this technology ushers in a new era of green refrigerants in the United States.
“Our investment reflects our commitment to the circular economy, to find and recover product through our Rapid Recovery network and reprocess that material for future use,” he said.
