RefriCazadores is a regional initiative of Tradewater International for the region of Latin America and the Caribbean. Has the objective to guarantee the adequate management of CFC and HCFC refrigerant gases that are still found in the countries in which it operates, in order to prevent them from escaping into the atmosphere and contributing to the depletion of the ozone layer and to climate change. By avoiding the emission of these gases, carbon credits are generated, which are purchased by various organizations and stakeholders as a means of offsetting their carbon footprint.

HOW DOES REFRICazadores WORK?


We identify and collect refrigerant gases to properly manage them.
Once a sufficient quantity has been accumulated, and through an authorized waste manager, the refrigerant gases are destroyed or regenerated locally or internationally, ensuring that the potential environmental impact is prevented.
By means of recognized and verifiable protocols, carbon credits are generated, the sale of which allows financing the search and management of more refrigerant gas.

Strengthening
We strengthen the refrigerant value chain. We do this by working with the stakeholders involved in the life cycle of the refrigerant gas, maximizing efforts to collect refrigerant at the end of its life cycle.

Cost
By selling the generated carbon credits we subsidize the search and management of more refrigerant gases. This allows us to offer the service at little or no cost, depending on the circumstances.

Destruction maximization
Our efforts contribute to finding more refrigerant available to be destroyed or reclaimed, preventing them from leaking into the atmosphere that helps reduce ozone depletion and fight climate change.

We are making a change


REFRICazadores is the name of the initiative for Latin America and the Caribbean of Tradewater International, a company subsidiary of Tradewater,specialized in the creation, development, and implementation of high-value projects that reduce or prevent greenhouse gas emissions.


The work of Tradewater International is also being developed in countries in Africa and Asia. Through efforts in its refrigerant gas program in the United States and internationally, Tradewater, has prevented the emission of more than 4 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent.
