Achievement of Irans HCFC
compliance targets: freeze at baseline consumption level (380.
From 2011, he said, the Ministry of Climate Change was phasing out Hydro chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs
), adding that there was no indigenous production of HCFCs
and Pakistan was importing ODS to meet the industrial requirements.
In his remarks Mosuf Ali UNEP's consultant provided information on the HCFC
phase-out schedule agreed by the country and the strategy it has formulated to phase out HCFCs
to remain in compliance with the Montreal Protocol.
The Philippines started freezing HCFC
importation level since January 2013.
In 1993, the EPA established the phase-out framework and the "worst-first" approach that focused first on HCFC
-141b, and HCFC
-142b because these three HCFCs
have the highest ozone depletion potential of all HCFCs
As of now the biggest user of HCFC
in Bahrain is Awal Gulf Manufacturing Company (a refrigeration and air conditioning equipment manufacturer) which accounts for about 70pc of Bahrain's HCFC
use in their manufacturing process," said Unido Montreal Protocol branch industrial development officer Lamia Benabbas.
The workshop discussed the removal of HCFCs
and the quota system in the Kingdom of Bahrain, as part of the Kingdom of Bahrain's obligations towards the Montreal Protocol namely curbing, restricting the importing of HCFCs
or rather R-22 substance which used in cooling and air-conditioning systems in the Kingdom.
Studies had shown that HCFC
are responsible for the gradual depletion of the earth's ozone layer, an important component in the atmosphere that blocks the entry of harmful solar rays.
Namibia under took the commitment to achieve a complete phase out of HCFC
Emitted CFC and HCFC
refrigerants have been directly connected to the destruction of stratospheric ozone.
The problem posed by HCFC
and HFC should be handled by the MP through the Multilateral Fund, directly financing the incineration of ali the produced HGC-23.
Despite all the warnings that the use of virgin R22 and other HCFCs
in refrigeration equipment was banned at the end of last year, there are still many plant, manufacturing and processing managers who are unaware that they may be storing or using illegal refrigerants, according to refrigerant supplier A-Gas.
