Refrigerant Reclaim Australia (RRA) is more than tripling the rebate for recovered ozone-depleting and synthetic greenhouse gas refrigerant, with the launch of its ‘Gas Seeker’ initiative.
From January 1 to June 30 2021, the rebate will increase from $3 per kg to $10 per kg when the recovered refrigerant is returned to your local gas supplier (limitations and T&Cs apply).
“We recognise that 2020 has been a challenging year,” said RRA general manager Kylie Farrelley.
“We want to do what we can to help and have been looking at ways that we can support the HVAC&R community.
“The Gas Seeker Initiative will do just that. By increasing the rebate during this period, we will further reward those who recover refrigerant and hope that individuals and businesses will use this as an opportunity to get rid of any stored unwanted refrigerant.
“We’re encouraging everyone to make the most of the Gas Seeker Initiative while you can, as it will only be available for a limited time.”
By returning refrigerant for safe destruction, the Australian HVAC&R industry prevents between 800,000 and 1 million tonnes of CO2-equivalent emissions annually, the equivalent of removing 400,000 vehicles from the roads each year.
