A-Gas has recovered over 5000 kg of refrigerants from HVAC plant at News International’s Wapping site.

A-Gas’s environmental-services team has recovered HCFC and HFC refrigerants from News International’s HVAC plant at Wapping prior to the site being sold for redevelopment. Over 5000 kg of refrigerant was recovered from various systems for reclaiming rather than disposing of by incineration. The refrigerants recovered included R22, R134a, R410A, R407C and R422D.

More refrigerant was decanted than anticipated, and purity was sufficiently high for much of it to be reclaimed.

After allowing for the costs of degassing the systems and transporting the cylinders into which the refrigerants were decanted, News International received a payment for the reprocessed material.
