This paper attempted to estimate the emissions of HFC-134a from scrap passenger vehicles as a result of measuring the residual quantities of HFC-134a in scrap vehicles. We measured the residual amounts in the scrap passenger vehicles of 196 by applying commercial recover for refrigerants. The average residual rate is reported to be 61.2 ± 2.4% with a confidence interval of 95%. As expected, the higher residual rates are shown for recent models. Little variation, however, is made with vehicle size. The HFC-134a emission quantity from scrap passenger vehicles in 2011 is estimated to be 326,236.83 tCO2 eq that demonstrates 53% increase to compare with that in 2007. As the numbers of passenger vehicles have increased dramatically during the last two decades, the emissions of HFC-134a from scrap passenger vehicles would increase sharply in the next coming years. The chemical compositions of refrigerants from scrap passenger vehicles are quite similar to those of new refrigerants, suggesting that the refrigerants from scrap passenger vehicles could be reused.
