Global chemistry company Chemours, has created an international F-gas Lifecycle Program across the Americas, Asia, and Europe. The program aims to advance safe, global recovery, reclaim, and reuse of fluorinated gases (F-gases) across its low global warming potential (GWP) Opteon™ products, Freon™ refrigerants, and FM-200™ portfolios.
This program, which began as region and country-specific initiatives, will now include global oversight to drive additional adoption, partnerships, and reclamation. As part of the program, Chemours will complete a global review to identify opportunities for expansion and increased collaboration. The program's creation reinforces Chemours’ commitment to supporting a global circular economy and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, as outlined in the most recent Chemours Sustainability Report. It also advances the net zero objectives of Chemours, broader industry, and global legislative bodies through overall emission reduction.
Chemours’ international F-gas Lifecycle Program includes agreements across the:
- Asia Pacific
“At Chemours, we are dedicated to harnessing the power of our chemistry to create a more sustainable and circular future,” said Joe Martinko, President of Thermal & Specialized Solutions at Chemours. “We have committed to, and are advancing, significant emission reduction within our gates. Now, we’re expanding our focus to emission reduction throughout the product lifecycle. F-gases—unlike so-called “natural” alternatives—can be recovered, reclaimed, and reused across multiple applications, maximizing resource efficiency, minimizing waste, and lowering emissions. This international F-gas Lifecycle Program will help advance circularity and sustainability around the world, ultimately supporting global climate targets and minimizing impact on our shared planet.”
In addition to offering the potential for circularity, Chemours’ portfolio of F-gas technologies also play an important role in the decarbonization of multiple industries and delivers significant socioeconomic value through innovation, reliability, safety, and efficiency.
