R22 Refrigerant Phase out

From 1 January 2010 Virgin R22 Refrigerants will be banned.

Fluorinated refrigerants used in air conditioning and refrigeration plant contribute to ozone depletion and the greenhouse effect. European and UK legislation has been created to control and, in some cases, completely ban their use.

R22 is the most common refrigerant gas and is currently used in over 60% of air conditioning units in the UK.


From December 2009 the use of virgin R22 refrigerant will be banned and all stocks destroyed.

Virgin HCFCs will no longer be available, or ‘new’ mineral refrigerant such as the commonly used R22 will no longer be on the market for sale, leaving only ‘reclaimed’ refrigerant available for re-sale.


1 January 2015 – all R22 Refrigerants will be banned

Come 2015, once the ban on R22s is in place, it is important to be aware that the end user will be the liable party in terms of its responsibility for its plant and equipment. The end user has a legal duty to ensure the safe removal and disposal of HCFCs such as R22, from any of its plant or equipment.
