Refrigerant Recovery NZ Limited: maximising product stewardship effectiveness for refrigerants

This one year project is developing an industry preferred mandatory stewardship scheme for refrigerants.Refrigerant Recovery NZ Ltd is a product stewardship scheme to inform Government’s decision on declaring refrigerants a priority product.

It will inform an industry request to the Associate Minister for the Environment for refrigerants to be declared a priority product for product stewardship. 

The accreditation of a stewardship scheme would also see sufficient funds allocated to ensure all refrigerants are correctly installed, maintained, collected and destroyed or reused to minimise both human health and environmental risks.
