Hudson Technologies, a Woodcliff Lake-based provider of products and services to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote energy efficiency in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration industry, on Monday said it entered into a licensing agreement with the Chemours Co., to reclaim refrigerants under the Freon brand name in its marketing materials related to these products.

“Hudson has enjoyed a longstanding relationship with Chemours and we’re very pleased to have this opportunity to use their well-respected Freon brand for the marketing of certain legacy reclaimed refrigerant products in addition to our Emerald Refrigerants brand of HFC refrigerants. As our industry navigates the phase-down and phase-out of refrigerants, it is important that our customers are aware of the availability of high-quality reclaimed options. Freon is a recognized and respected brand that we believe will bring heightened visibility to our reclaimed products and promote the use of our sustainable refrigerant solutions,” Brian Coleman, CEO and president of Hudson Technologies said.

Doug Westerhoff, Americas sales director at Chemours said: “Chemours and Hudson have been pioneers in developing sustainable refrigerant products and practices. We’re proud to partner with Hudson to deliver reclaimed Freon refrigerants to the market and supporting both lifecycle refrigerant management and the long-term transition to next generation products through the AIM Act.”

Chemours invented Freon and recently said it would discontinue U.S. sales of select Freon products, in support of regulatory phasedown requirements of hydrofluorocarbons outlined under the American Innovation and Manufacturing Act and Canada’s Ozone-depleting Substances and Halocarbon Alternatives Regulations.
