HCFC Refrigerant R22 Phase Out

Australia has a legislated phase out of ozone depleting HCFC refrigerants, in line with its obligations under the Montreal Protocol.  Australia will largely phase out the import of HCFCs from 2016, apart from 2.5 ozone depletion potential tonnes a year (equating to around 45 tonnes of R22) which will be permitted until 2029 to service equipment.  After 2029, the servicing of remaining R22 based systems will rely solely on recycled or reclaimed refrigerant.

Team Catalyst can provide due diligence for existing R22 equipment, as well as recommend upgrades (where appropriate) with energy efficiency and stable operation as core outcomes.
