The automotive industry has developed new technologies that will reduce
greenhouse gas emissions from car and truck air conditioning systems. Now electronic leak detectors and new
recycling machines will help reduce emissions during automotive air conditioner repairs. U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency's Mobile Air Conditioning Climate Protection Partnership helped developed these advances.
"EPA and its mobile air conditioning partners are driving toward cleaner air, a healthier economy, and a more secure energy
future," said Bill Wehrum, acting assistant administrator for EPA's Office of Air and Radiation. "Car owners can make a
difference by insisting on professional service of automobile air conditioners using the best available equipment."
