RMC is a not-for-profit corporation established in 2000 by the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) and the Canadian refrigeration and air conditioning industry. The program is an industry-led environmental care program committed to the responsible disposal of surplus Halocarbon refrigerants from the stationary refrigeration and air conditioning industry. The program does not receive government funding and is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of industry representatives from the refrigeration and air conditioning industry, equipment owners and environment/community groups.

RMC Mission:

Our mission is to provide an environmentally responsible program that:

  • Manages the environmentally responsible disposal of Canada's stocks of surplus Halocarbon refrigerants for the Canadian refrigeration and air conditioning industries;
  • Meets the objective of the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) to minimize and avoid the ultimate release of these substances to the environment; and
  • Ensures that all surplus Halocarbon refrigerants will be managed in the most environmentally responsible manner to minimize the depletion of the ozone layer and reduce green house gas emissions.
