Many people are unprepared for the phase-out of R22

Concerned about the lack of awareness of the phase-out of R22, Ken Logan of A-Gas (UK).

Ken Logan, managing director of A-(UK) Ltd, has expressed surprise at how many people are still unprepared for the phase-out of R22, following the recent RAC exhibition.

Discussions by visitors from the pub trade, food, processing and manufacturing industries focused on HCFC phase-out, refrigerant banking services, R22 replacements and recovery services. Some are planning to rely on existing refrigerants until the complete ban on recycled material by 2015.

The real surprise to Ken Logan, however, was that some enquiries came from the HVCA industry, with some companies unaware of their options or the timescales.

John Ormerod, business development manager with the company, explains, ‘Many visitors were confused and hadn’t realised that the 2015 deadline may even be brought forward and businesses are fast running out of time. There’s still a lot of R22 in use that has yet to come back for recycling, and customers need to act now.’

Customers were also unaware that banking genuine recycled refrigerants was an option and were warned that stocks and prices are creeping up substantially for recycled material as the deadline moves close. Refrigerant banking enables businesses to put in place a solution that best suits their requirements. Banking buys time and provides continuity and security of supply.
