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 are up to 10,200 times more potent than CO2, and 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.
In Thailand, Tradewater is working in cooperation with the government to collect and control old refrigerants that were brought into the country illegally and seized by the Customs Department. Tradewater is managing the seized stockpile of refrigerants, aggregating the gas, and destroying it at an incineration firm located in Thailand, which meets all environmental regulations as well as the destruction requirements of the Montreal Protocol. The total impact of the project will exceed 1 million metric tonnes of carbon credits. Credits were generated from the collection and destruction of old refrigerants in accordance with the protocols set forth by the American Carbon Registry (ACR). All ACR projects are third-party verified to ensure compliance and quality.
