New R-22 Production in the U.S. Continues with 9 Million Pounds This Year

U.S. R-22 Phase-Out Chart

R-22 is legal to buy, sell and use now and after 2020. However, newly-manufactured R-22 will be no longer be allowed in the U.S. beginning in 2020.

This year, 2018, the allowance is 9 million pounds. In 2019, the allowance drops to 4 million pounds.

Reclamation is now more important than ever to preserve R-22 for the marketplace. By correctly recovering and reclaiming as much used R-22 as possible, we can all help keep this very widespread refrigerant viable. ASPEN Refrigerants invites anyone with used R-22 to contact us for a buyback quote. 

ASPEN has planned for this phasedown and has R-22 for you—even in large quantities. Call your ASPEN sales representative for a quote today.
