EOS Climate on Tuesday announced it will provide the DuPont refrigerant distributor network access to its Refrigerant Asset System (RAS) to help curb greenhouse gas emissions generated by refrigerants.
Launched last November, the RAS software and systems make the existing refrigerant supply chain more efficient, enabling users to track every pound of refrigerant from purchase through to recovery, reclamation and its eventual end-of-life.
Refrigerants are powerful greenhouse gases and major culprits in global climate change. However, they have traditionally been treated as consumables in a linear model, in that they are produced, used, leaked and replaced on an ongoing basis. The RAS allows companies to manage refrigerants as assets, investing in their conservation and maintenance, and monetizing them when they have reached the end of their useful life.
Through this partnership, EOS says it will offer its customers access to a refrigerant distribution network that is integrated into its state-of-the-art tracking system. EOS Climate also has named the DuPont distributor network as its preferred refrigerant distributors.
EOS says it successfully piloted the program with DuPont and Barsco, a DuPont refrigerants distributor in Texas, which serves commercial refrigeration and HVAC mechanical contractors.
"The integration of this distributor network into our Refrigerant Asset System allows our customers to track refrigerant from the point-of-purchase for the first time,” said Matt Jones, EOS Climate's CEO.
