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,

The Air Resources Board’s 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 ARB’s
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
program’s 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 – 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, California’s 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
