Reusing refrigerant: L∞P by Daikin

Reusing refrigerant, avoiding more than 250,000 kg of virgin gas being produced each year.

L ∞P by Daikin: reusing certified reclaimed refrigerant

External Certified Quality

Reclaimed refrigerant meets AHRI700 certified standards, assessed by an independent laboratory, and so is the same quality as virgin refrigerant.

Reclaimed and reused within Europe*

Reclaimed means the refrigerant is regenerated in a high quality way, in line with the F-gas regulation definition.

Reclaiming R-410A is just the start

With a huge potential of R-410A available in existing installations we invite you to join our mission in creating this circular economy. Today for R-410A and for other refrigerants in future.

Certified Allocated Quantity

Virgin and reclaimed refrigerant are used in the Daikin Europe factory. Through an audit process we ensure the reclaimed refrigerant is administratively allocated to the factory charge of VRV units produced and sold in Europe*.

What does Certified Reclaimed Refrigerant Allocation mean?

L∞P by Daikin: The principle

The principle of certified reclaimed refrigerant allocation

 

1. Refrigerant is recovered from the market by installer network
2. Refrigerant is reclaimed = regeneration in a high quality way that equals virgin quality
3. A mix of reclaimed and virgin refrigerant is used at our factory to charge products
4. A mix of reclaimed and virgin refrigerant is used at our factory to charge products*
5. The reclaimed refrigerant is reused in the market – closing the loop

6. Recycled refrigerant for field charge and servicing
