Got refrigerant?

We acquire your refrigerant

If you have unused or recovered refrigerant gas, we are interested in acquiring it from you through the following 3 steps:

R12 Boxes

1. Share the details of your refrigerant

We first need to know what type of refrigerant gases you hold, quantity, status (recovered or unused), location, and your contact information. Scroll down to learn what types of refrigerant we can acquire from you!

Acquiring

2. Get an offer

Based on the details you share, we will make you an offer for your refrigerant with financial, logistical and time considerations on a case-by-case basis.

Testing refrigerant

3. Arrange for confirmation and acquisition

Lastly, Tradewater inspects the material to confirm its eligibility, and then we acquire and collect the refrigerant gases.

Eligible Refrigerant Gases

Tradewater collects CFC and HCFC refrigerant gases. See below for eligible refrigerant types.

. The eligible CFC and HCFC gases that we can manage may vary depending on each country. Please contact us for more information.

 Tradewater collects refrigerant gas cylinders that are not damaged or leaking.

In the case of unused (new/virgin) material, it must have been lawfully produced and imported.
