EOS Climate has launched its Refrigerant Asset System (RAS), a 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. RAS 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. Major US retailers and refrigeration service contractors are deploying the new platform on a pilot basis.
RAS provides refrigerant-intensive industries—such as supermarkets, hotels, 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 point of purchase through to the end of life. This real-time transparency into refrigerant movement delivers information seamlessly for compliance reporting, advanced sustainability metrics, and enables refrigerant owners to capture value from their assets.
Because assets get managed, RAS could revolutionize refrigerant use. Deployed at scale, it can prevent millions of metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent from reaching the atmosphere.
