About the product

The objective of this publication is to help developing country governments and industry representatives to design and establish recovery and recycling (R&R) systems, and to operate them efficiently. The establishment of such R&R systems represents a cost-effective step in reducing the consumption of virgin CFC refrigerants without major capital investment, and in allowing existing CFC-based equipment to run until the end of its economic life. Most CFCs in developing countries are used in refrigeration, and the majority of the consumption within the refrigeration sector is for maintenance and servicing of CFC-containing equipment.
