One of the specialist services offered by REMONDIS’ dismantling centre in Troyes is dismantling cooling units containing ammonia
REMONDIS’ dismantling centre in Troyes, which is situated approx. 180 kilometres south east of Paris, is equipped with a multi-functional system enabling it to dismantle both small electrical devices and cooling appliances. Its second main area of business focuses on processing and treating cooling units containing ammonia. The facility in Troyes is the only plant in REMONDIS Electrorecycling’s network able to handle and process such cooling units.
Ammonia or NH3 is a natural coolant. NH3 was a commonly used refrigerant in fridges before manufacturers began using halocarbons such as CFCs. Whilst ammonia is not an ozone-depleting gas and does not contribute towards the greenhouse effect, it is toxic for humans. The facility at Troyes responsible for treating the cooling units containing ammonia first removes this toxic substance before dismantling the units into their individual parts. These different recyclable materials are then returned to the economic cycle.
