URT is the world's leading manufacturer of refrigerator disposal plants. For over 25 years URT engineers are working in this field and creating plant concepts for the different customer demands. More than 50 plants worldwide are equipped with the URT technology.
URT refrigerator recycling plants have achieved excellent results especially in the field of CFC's (VFC) recovery. The changeover to CFC-free refrigerants and blowing agents (VHC) was a new and further challenge for URT engineers, because substitutes are flammable and explosive. URT is offering different concepts for the recovery of blowing agents.
Furthermore URT is also disposing of the technology to convert harmful substances into air harmless substances. This patented converting process was already realized by URT in Brazil in 2010 for the first time. Climate harmless hydroflouric and hydrocloric acids are produced from harmful CFCs .
Incidentally, the GWP (Global Warming Potential) of CFC R 12 (halogenated refrigerant) is 10.200. This means that this CFC is 10,200 times more harmful than CO2.
Employees of URT are working in different national and international working groups in order to submit their specialized knowledge to be integrated also in regulations and laws.
URT fridge disposal reference plants are located in Europe, North America, South America and Asia.
