A-Gas assumes responsibility for Gasco refrigerant cylinders
A-Gas (UK) has reached agreement to purchase Gasco Group’s entire UK fleet of refrigerant and recovery cylinders. These cylinders were, over many years, originally placed into operation in the UK market by refrigerant distributor Gasco International, which went into administration in December 2008 following the insolvency of its Belgian parent Gasco Europe.
With Gasco in administration, customers were unable to return cylinders.
Ken Logan, managing director of A-Gas, says, ‘This brings to an end the uncertainty in the trade as to what to do with empty refrigerant cylinders or, indeed, full recovery cylinders since Gasco International went into administration.
A-Gas now has sole title to all Gasco refrigerant and recovery cylinders in the UK, which will be used to boost A-Gas’s recovery and reclaim service and further help with the virgin HCFC phase-out.
Processing the recovery cylinders will also enable A-Gas to deal with the many tonnes of used refrigerant by turning it into reclaimed refrigerant, which would otherwise have been left to create a potential environmental hazard.
