Tradewater is a B Corp and mission-based project development company that is strategically focused on the collection, control, and destruction of potent non-CO2  greenhouse gases, permanently preventing their release into the atmosphere. Addressing non-CO2 gases such as old refrigerants and fire suppressants, and methane from orphaned oil and gas wells, has been identified by leading scientists at both Project Drawdown and the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as a crucial lever to prevent catastrophic climate change.
This project was focused on responsible end-of-life solutions for refrigerants that are both potent greenhouse gases and ozone depleting substances. These refrigerants were banned from production almost 40 years ago via the Montreal Protocol, but there were no mandates put into place for their responsible destruction. Tradewater and its partners are the only ones addressing the issue of CFC and HCFC refrigerants globally with a model that reinvests profits from the sale of offset credits into scaling the solution around the world. These attributes make the project unique, additional, and necessary.
Tradewater has worked to develop collection networks in the US to identify and collect old refrigerant gases. Tradewater is focused on the small-scale aggregation of refrigerants meaning that Tradewater will collect refrigerants in any quantity anywhere in the US. In this work, Tradewater has completed over 23,000 transactions in 49 states and has invested over $40 million into local communities. Tradewater aggregates the refrigerants it collects at its warehouse, then ships them off for permanent destruction. In this project, 8,857lbs of refrigerant were destroyed, preventing 67,967 tons of CO2e from entering the atmosphere.
Offset credits were generated from the collection and destruction of old refrigerants in accordance with the protocols set forth by the leading carbon registry American Carbon Registry (ACR). All ACR projects are third-party verified to ensure compliance and quality.
