ARCA Recycling, a Subsidiary of JanOne Inc., Launches Two Recycling Programs in California in Effort to Reduce GHG EmissionsPR Newswire PR Newswire • October 27, 2021
Minneapolis – October 27, 2021 – ARCA Recycling, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of JanOne Inc. (NASDAQ: JAN), launched two new appliance recycling programs in Northern California, with a focus on decreasing the release of greenhouse gas (GHG) and ozone-depleting emissions into the atmosphere. The primary goal of these programs is to prevent the release of hazardous, ozone-depleting substances found in refrigerants and insulating foam in an effort to protect air quality. ARCA anticipates recycling 10,000 total appliances through these programs, resulting in landfill diversion of over 1.2 million lbs. of recyclable metals, plastics and glass and prevention of the release of over 1,000 ODP-weighted kg. of ozone-depleting substances.
Through these programs, appliances at their end-of-life will be recycled to the U.S. EPA’s Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) Program standards, which includes removing insulating foam that may contain CFCs and HCFCs. Foam is sent to a co-generation facility where it is incinerated, capturing 100% of the remaining GHG emissions. The incineration process then generates energy for the facility.
