Refrigerant Compliance Policy

Effective July 1, 1992, it became unlawful to intentionally vent refrigerants into the atmosphere for any reason. It is the policy of Purdue University to comply with all Federal, State, and local regulations promulgated to protect the stratosphere from ozone depleting substances by preventing the release of refrigerants into the environment. In accordance with Article 22 of the Indiana Administrative Code (326 IAC 22 - Stratospheric Ozone Protection) as well as Section 608 (National Recycling and Emission Reduction Program) and Section 609 (Servicing of Motor Vehicles) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) Title VI, Purdue University will comply with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations promulgated in Title 40, Part 82, of the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR Part 82 - Protection of Stratospheric Ozone). Compliance is intended to prohibit the intentional release of Class I (see Appendix B) or Class II (see Appendix C) ozone depleting substances allowing only “de minimis” releases associated with good faith efforts to reduce, recapture, recycle, or safely dispose of any such substances. The Refrigerant Compliance Policy shall apply to all equipment on the West Lafayette campus, North Central campus, Calumet campus, Fort Wayne campus, regional agriculture centers, research farms, and any leased facility of Purdue University entities.
