August 30, 2016

The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) updated AHRI Guideline Q, Content Recovery and Proper Recycling of Refrigerant Cylinders to include best practices for end-of-life recycling of flammable refrigerant containers.

AHRI President and CEO Stephen Yurek commented that it’s critical not only to handle flammable refrigerants safely, but also to recycle the containers properly. Recommended practices for recycling containers for flammable refrigerants differ from those for non-flammable refrigerants. Download Guideline Q free hereĀ or from the AHRI website.
