WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., July 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hudson Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: HDSN), a leading provider of innovative sustainable solutions to the Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration industry – and one of the nation’s largest refrigerant reclaimers – today announced that its EMERALD Refrigerants™ line of products has received recognition as the prestigious Top Product of the Year in the Environment + Energy Leader Awards program. The awards program aims to commend excellence in products and projects that deliver significant energy and environmental benefits.
Many refrigerants used in the HVACR industry have a high Global Warming Potential and impact the atmosphere with the unintended release of greenhouse gases. EMERALD Refrigerants™ are certified reclaimed refrigerants, recovered and “made” in the US by Hudson. EMERALD Refrigerants™ help reduce the unintended release of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere and, as a recycled product, combat the environmental impact associated with the production of new virgin refrigerant. EMERALD Refrigerants™ allow continued use of installed equipment at optimal design conditions to reduce energy consumption and avoid costly system replacement.
Sarah Roberts, Co-President of E+E Leader, emphasized the rigorous selection process, stating, “This year’s entrants had to surpass an exceptionally high bar to qualify for an award, thanks to a seasoned and discerning judging panel as well as stringent judging criteria. The outstanding qualities and remarkable achievements of the Hudson EMERALD Refrigerants™ captivated the attention of the program’s distinguished panel of judges, with one judge remarking that the ability to capture and repurpose gas is advantageous for environmental preservation, as any instance of reclaiming and reusing resources contributes to a positive impact on the environment.”
Brian F. Coleman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hudson Technologies commented, “Since our Company’s founding, Hudson has been committed to fostering the reuse of resources including refrigerants, through the promotion of responsible refrigerant management and sustainable practices. We’re honored to receive this recognition from Environment + Energy Leader, which highlights our efforts and successes in developing unique and environmentally friendly products and services that can help prevent the venting of gases into the atmosphere while also easing the transition to increasingly greener cooling systems and refrigerants. We look forward to continuing to drive the progress of innovative technology and solutions for our industry.”
