F-GAS and HFC collection and disposal center
All fluorinated gases CFCs, HCFCs and HFCs cannot be discharged into the atmosphere, but must be collected and recovered to be sent for disposal or regeneration as special and hazardous waste (to which the CER code 140601 * is attributed).
Companies authorized by the Ministry of the Environment and therefore registered in the National Register of Environmental Managers can operate for disposal. Gielle offers a collection and disposal service for f-gas and hfc throughout the world.
In order to reduce the emissions of these fluorinated gases, the European Parliament and the Council have adopted specific regulations. On May 20, 2014, Regulation (EU) no. Was published in the Official Journal of the European Union. 517/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council on fluorinated greenhouse gases. Entered into force on 9 June 2014, the Regulation applies from 1 January 2015. The European Regulations are implemented by the Member States through specific regulations, which also provide for significant penalties for non-compliance with obligations. (Presidential Decree No. 43 of January 27, 2012 and Legislative Decree No. 26 of March 05, 2013).
What are the alternatives to HFCs and CFCs?
Traditional extinguishing substances, water, carbon dioxide, powders and foaming agents are alternatives to F-GAS halogenated substances (FM200, NAF S-125, HALOTRON, HALON, NAF S-III etc.). The best solutions currently on the market are the ecological extinguishers called CLEAN AGENTS: 3M ™ Novec ™ 1230 (FK-5-1-12), Argon, Nitrogen, Inergen and inert gas mixtures.
