FARMINGTON, Conn., Feb. 14, 2013

FARMINGTON, Conn., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Carrier, the world's leader
in high technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, and
EOS Climate, a San Francisco-based company dedicated to protecting the
environment via collection and destruction of ozone depleting substances
(ODS), announce an innovative program to ensure responsible end-of-life
management of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC)-based used refrigerants. The program
brings sustainable technology and cost savings to commercial and industrial
organizations. Carrier is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit
of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

Typically, when CFC-based chillers are upgraded or replaced, the refrigerant
inside is extracted, reclaimed and resold. This new program provides a
sustainable alternative to this process enabling refrigerants, such as CFC-11,
12, 113, 114, 115 and 500, to be destroyed in a controlled, effective and
accountable manner. The program ensures that refrigerants will not leak with
continued reuse.

"Carrier is a natural leader in providing sustainable technology and
developing responsible processes that preserve the world we live in tomorrow,"
said John Mandyck, chief sustainability officer, UTC Climate, Controls &
Security. "Proper refrigerant destruction is another way for companies to
lead the world to a sustainable future." Mandyck noted that the change-out of
older CFC chillers to newer, more energy efficient technologies can also save
building operating costs while lowering the environmental impact of energy
demand. Carrier's partnership with EOS provides incentives that can help
acquire more energy efficient solutions.

Through the program, destroyed CFC refrigerants are verified by a third party
and are registered under the California Air Resources Board, the agency
overseeing California's groundbreaking carbon reduction program. All
completed projects receive full refrigerant destruction and carbon credit
documentation.

"EOS Climate is proud to partner with Carrier to offer commercial and
industrial organizations an innovative and sustainable solution to end-of-life
refrigerant management," said Matt Jones, CEO, EOS Climate.

The program is part of EOS Climate's Refrigerant Revolution^™, a
multi-industry stewardship system revolutionizing refrigerant management at
end-of-life. Under this system, organizations have the opportunity to generate
economic value from used refrigerants and equipment upgrades while moving
beyond compliance requirements towards complete lifecycle management.
