The HALON RECYCLING CORPORATION (HRC) was formed by concerned halon users and the fire protection industry to support the goals of the Montreal Protocol. HRC acts as a facilitating organization for the recycling of halons and is the main liaison for the fire protection industry with the US government on halon-related issues.
Despite the phase-out of production, halons continue to be needed in a number of important applications including commercial aviation, oil and gas, and military. It is critical that the world’s existing halon resources continue to be carefully managed.
