Summary of Refrigerant Reclamation Trends
Below is a chart illustrating reclaimed refrigerant trends, in pounds, each year from 2005 - 2021. Starting in 2017, the chart includes data on hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerant. The five most common HFCs and HFC blends are disaggregated. Other CFCs and HCFCs that are reported in small quantities (e.g., CFC-115 and HCFC-142b) or that are contained in blends with non-ODS (e.g., R-408A) are excluded. A table with figures, by refrigerant type, is available below.
