Recovery & Destruction of Air-Conditioner Refrigerants(Japan)

All dealerships are registered as take-back stations

All Nissan dealerships have been recovering chlorofluorocarbons based on Japan's Automobile Recycling Law, and are registered with local government bodies as "take-back stations" as this law requires.

Incorporation into the Nissan Green Shop certification system

The Nissan Green Shop Manual describes the environmental practices to be carried out at dealerships, and has been updated to comply with the Automobile Recycling Law. Check items for chlorofluorocarbon recovery are now numbered, and the status of activities is monitored during regular inspections.

Chlorofluorocarbon recovery

Chlorofluorocarbon recovery tanks

Nissan has contracted the Japan Automobile Recycling Promotion Center to recover and destroy specified chlorofluorocarbons (CFC12) and their alternatives, hydro-fluorocarbons (HFC134a), which are used as alternatives to chlorofluorocarbons, based on a law for the recovery and destruction of chlorofluorocarbons that went into effect in October 2002.

Since January 2005, Nissan has been conducting its own processes based on the Automobile Recycling Law to break down recovered chlorofluorocarbons (CFC12) and the hydro-fluorocarbons (HFC134a) that are used as their substitutes.
