Processing and removal of waste ozone depleting substances or fluorinated greenhouse gases

The operator of immovable equipment, maintenance provider of equipment and authorised company must submit the accumulated waste ozone depleting substances or fluorinated greenhouse gases to the processor or remover of ozone depleting substances or fluorinated greenhouse gases for processing or removal.

Processing entails the processing of an ozone depleting substance or fluorinated greenhouse gas up to the level that is required for a new substance or new gas in connection with the quality of an ozone depleting substance or fluorinated greenhouse gas.

The removal of waste substance includes the procedures of dissolution or destruction of waste ozone depleting substances or fluorinated greenhouse gases that do not harm the environment. In this process, all ozone depleting substances or fluorinated greenhouse gases are modified or dissolved to several durable substances that do not harm the ozone or to fluorinated greenhouse gases.

The processor or remover of waste ozone depleting substances or fluorinated greenhouse gases can perform this activity after acquiring the environmental protection permit. The processing of such substances must be accompanied by appropriate handling, keeping records and preparing a report.
