Victoria, Australia: In a statement issued by A-Gas, the company has said that it welcomes the Kigali amendment to the Montreal Protocol, and added that it will fully implement the agreement in all the company’s regions.

Commenting on the agreement, Ken Logan, Group Commercial Business Development Director of A-Gas, said, “We believe that the Kigali Amendment is overwhelmingly good news for our business and will help strengthen and grow A-Gas across all our regions as well as bringing new and exciting business opportunities.”

“In all A-Gas regions,” Logan said, “Ozone depleting substances (ODS) are regulated under the Montreal Protocol. The Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol will now include an orderly and gradual phasedown of high GWP virgin HFC products under a very similar framework. The original Montreal Protocol is seen by the United Nations as the most successful international treaty negotiated and implemented in history – regardless of subject matter – so the inclusion of HFCs is an important addition.”

Reiterating A-Gas’ commitment to the agreement, Logan said: “We were expecting the inclusion of HFCs into the Montreal Protocol and have worked towards this outcome over a long period of time. A-Gas is ideally placed to help customers make the necessary transitions with our world leading refrigerant recovery and reclamation technologies and unsurpassed range of refrigerant options. Whatever solution is required to move down the GWP ladder A-Gas has it as a ‘one stop shop’.”
