San Francisco-based EOS Climate launched Refrigerant Asset System (RAS), what is said to be the first cross-sector business model that focuses on refrigerants as assets.
Refrigerants are potent greenhouse gases and significant contributors to global climate change when released to the atmosphere. 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 Refrigerant Asset System allows businesses to manage refrigerants as assets, investing in their conservation and maintenance and monetizing them when they have reached the end of their useful life.
RAS provides refrigerant intensive industries, such as supermarkets and manufacturers of refrigeration and HVAC equipment with multiple asset optimization paths for their refrigerants. The system deploys integrated technology across the refrigerant value chain to track every pound of refrigerant from the point of purchase to the end of life. The unprecedented, real-time transparency into refrigerant movement delivers information seamlessly for compliance reporting and advanced sustainability metrics and enables refrigerant owners to capture value from their assets.
Deployed at scale, it can prevent millions of metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent from reaching the atmosphere.
