A climate solution that you can be a part of

Do you have refrigerant gas?

A positive cycle of contribution to our planet

Our business model is based on a positive cycle in which we create economic value from the destruction of potent and harmful refrigerant gases, and invest the proceeds into new projects to find, collect, and destroy more gases. If you want to contribute to the cycle and have refrigerant gas for us to manage, click here, or you can learn more about the carbon credits we produce by clicking here.

Positive Cycle

Our Impact

We find and destroy some of the most potent greenhouse gases before they are released into the atmosphere, avoiding tons of greenhouse gas emissions, measured in carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), every year. That’s why Project Drawdown ranks refrigerant disposal as the number one approach to fight accelerated global warming.

Join the Effort

Our goal is to destroy some of the most potent greenhouse gases before they are released into the atmosphere. Help us fight global warming and ozone depletion by being a part of a climate solution that will ensure a healthy environment for generations to come.
