Summary of Refrigerant Reclamation Trends

Below is a chart illustrating reclaimed refrigerant trends, in pounds, each year from 2000 - 2019. Starting in 2017, the chart includes data on hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerant. The five most common HFCs and HFC blends are disaggregated. Other CFCs and HCFCs that are reported in small quantities (e.g., CFC-115 and HCFC-142b) or that are contained in blends with non-ODS (e.g., R-408A) are excluded. A table with figures, by refrigerant type, is available below. The "Other HFCs" total in the table is different than the chart because the table separates HFC-23 and HFC-227ea into their own columns in addition to the five HFCs shown in the chart.
