Refrigerant Phase-Outs

Back in 2015, SJH BUILDING SERVICES was formed, and from that point onwards, we worked hard to grow the business to where it is today.

In just a short time, we’ve worked with some of Britain’s leading companies helping them to achieve their project goals. This is something that we continue to do to this day as we firmly believe that there is no ‘I’ in team.

R-22

R-22 is a powerful greenhouse gas with a global warming potential that is 1810 (which indicates 1810 times as powerful as carbon dioxide).

The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone is an international treaty designed to protect the ozone layer. The aim is to phase out the production of numerous substances believed to be responsible for ozone depletion. It is believed that if the international agreement is adhered to, the ozone layer is expected to recover by 2050.

The Montreal Protocol

Due to its widespread adoption and implementation, this protocol has been hailed as an example of exceptional international co-operation. Kofi Annan was quoted as saying that “perhaps the single most successful international agreement to date has been the Montreal Protocol”.

R-22 refrigerant or hydro chlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) was and still is very common in the UK. In fact, R-22 air conditioning and refrigeration systems are still in use in workplaces throughout the country. So many businesses are unaware that the Government has powers to punish any company not complying with the act. This is largely because the word is not making it out there to enough people.
