The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has selected the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) to receive its 2005 Stratospheric Ozone Protection Award for AHAM's efforts at promoting the responsible handling of flurocarbons, and for related research into ozone-friendly refrigerants and foam blowing agents.
The award will be presented at the 2005 Stratospheric Ozone Protection Awards Dinner, here, May 4.
AHAM has supported the transition of refrigerator-freezers using chloroflurocarbons refrigerants and foam-blowing agents to hydroflurocarbons chemicals, which do not deplete the ozone layer.
AHAM has also proactively created programs and training manuals to educate and certify appliance service and disposal technicians in the responsible handling of flurocarbons.
