R22 Phaseout

R22 Phase Out

R22 Phase Out: Under European regulations R22 is being phased out and from 31st December 2009 it became illegal to supply and use new R22 refrigerant for the maintenance and service of refrigeration equipment.  From 31st December 2014 it will be illegal to use recovered or recycled R22.

If you have essential refrigeration equipment operating on R22 you should start planning now.  Each refrigeration system needs to be examined and checks made with the manufacturers to determine the feasibility of conversion to an approved ozone friendly refrigerant.
