arbcombo -- Reminder: April 1st Deadline for Large Refrigeration System Facilities and Refrigerant Distributors/Wholesalers/Reclaimers Posted: 23 Mar 2012 14:04:45
Facility owners with large refrigeration systems, refrigerant distributors, wholesalers, and reclaimers in California need to register and submit annual reports before the April 1, 2012, deadline. The Air Resources Boardís Refrigerant Management regulation requires all facilities with stationary, non-residential, refrigeration systems using 2,000 pounds or more of a high-global warming potential refrigerant and refrigerant distributors, wholesalers, and reclaimers to register and submit annual reports this year. Systems used exclusively for air conditioning, i.e. comfort cooling, or that use ammonia or CO2 refrigerants, are not required to register. All affected facilities can register and report using ARBís online tool, known as the "Refrigerant Registration and Reporting System" or R3. The tool is available at www.arb.ca.gov/rmp-r3. Additional information on how to use the tool is available on the programís website. The Refrigerant Management Program applies to refrigerant distributors, wholesalers, reclaimers, and facilities with refrigeration systems that use more than 50 lbs of high global warming potential refrigerants Ė those typically used in supermarkets, cold storage warehouses, food processing plants and process cooling operations. The requirements of the regulation build on long established federal rules on refrigeration systems and are designed to minimize leaks of the environmentally harmful refrigerants and comply with AB 32, Californiaís law requiring the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Refrigerants are potent greenhouse gases, more than a thousand times more capable of trapping heat in the atmosphere than an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide, the most common greenhouse gas.
