Chicago, IL – Our pilot project in collaboration with Iron Mountain (NYSE: IRM) and Wesco HMB, demonstrates an economically viable, environmentally responsible end-of-life solution for halon gas, one of the world’s most dangerous greenhouse gasses. The destruction of the world’s remaining halon gas could eliminate over 300 million tons of carbon pollution worldwide, or the equivalent of eliminating the annual greenhouse gas emissions of more than 65 million cars.
