INDIANAPOLIS, July 7, 2021 – Heritage Environmental Services, Inc. (Heritage), a leader in environmental and sustainability services, and Fielding Environmental (Fielding), a leader in resource recovery, have partnered to acquire Reclamation Technologies, Inc. (RTI) in Blaine, Minnesota.

RTI is an EPA-certified refrigerant reclamation company serving customers in the Midwest and Texas. They provide on-site services and have the capability to separate mixed gases. One of the main benefits of refrigerant reclamation is to give building owners and HVAC/R contractors a safe and affordable solution to manage refrigerants that are harmful to the ozone layer and contribute to global warning.  Reusing these materials also reduces consumption of non-renewable resources needed to make virgin refrigerants.

“The acquisition supports the expansion of Heritage’s service offerings in the refrigerants business, growing its platform beyond leadership in the Ozone Depleting Substances business. Heritage will now be able to offer its global customers a complete solution for the highest and best use of used refrigerant gases in partnership with another multi-generational circular economy-focused family business based in Canada,” said Jeff Laborsky, CEO of Heritage. “We’re excited to continue our purpose to protect human health and the environment and also prevent greenhouse gases from escaping into the atmosphere.“

“Everything came together in a perfect way.  I can’t think of a better partnership to service this space.  Together, Heritage and Fielding have the resources and experience to be the North American leader in refrigerant management services – whether gas requires reclamation, separation, or destruction, we have the solutions for our customers.  When the American Innovation and Manufacturing (AIM) Act was announced we knew the timing for a partnership was right, and when we visited RTI we knew the acquisition was right.  I am very excited about our team and all we are going to do together,” said Katelyn Imrie, Executive Vice President of Fielding.
