Technology transfer through conversion projects in HCFC
-consuming sectors including projects in residential-air conditioners, foam and refrigeration sectors and providing training in the servicing sector resulting in the phase-out of about 164 ODP tons of HCFCs
The plan is very ambitious and forward-looking and will enable Pakistan to reduce its consumption of HCFCs
by 50% in 2020," he added.
Issues like implementation of 2012 HS Codes for HCFCs
and data feeding in Web Based One Customs (WeBOC) system in customs to automatically control the imports of HCFC
were also discussed on the occasion.
EMB has been conducting technical consultation on the targeted importation reduction for HCFC
through the Philippine Ozone Desk (POD).
We are working in line with customs and other authorities to monitor imports of HCFCs
The parties of Montreal Protocol agreed to expedite the timetable in order to gradually eliminate HCFCs
in developing countries and also agreed to curb the use of these substances and to freeze the level of HCFCs
' consumption at the level of the year 2009.
Paje further said the country's import of HCFC
products will be reduced by 10 per cent from the base level of 2,644 tonnes to 2,3796 tonnes by 2015 and then by 35 per cent to 1,718.
The decision to phase out HCFC
earlier than the Montreal Protocol schedule is based on the country's commitment to meet challenges for both ozone protection and climate impact mitigation," she added.
Between January 1, 2010 and January 1, 2015, recycled HCFC
may be used.
Ademas, el auspicio de la produccion de HCFC
-22 por el MDL jugaria contra el PM, que aprobo financiar el reemplazo futuro de los HCFC
por sustancias sin efecto sobre la capa de ozono.
In addition to reclaimed R22, A-Gas is stocking a variety of other reclaimed HCFC
refrigerants including R408A, R409A, R401A+B, R402A+B, R403B (Isceon 69L) as well as a few of the less well known HCFCs
For operators of ozone depleting HCFC
refrigerants, the key date of 1st January 2010 swiftly approaches when virgin R22, R 502 and other HCFC
blends become illegal to use for maintenance and only recycled product can be used to top up refrigeration systems.
This action also will amend provisions concerning HCFC
production for developing countries' basic domestic needs and would clarify a ban on the sale and distribution of HCFCs
through interstate commerce under the Clean Air Act.
European regulations require a ban on the use of HCFC
22 fluids for the maintenance of air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment.
Firemaster 520 was developed in close consultation with foam manufacturers who need to change their formulations to accommodate alternative blowing agents that are quickly replacing HCFC
, which is subject to phase-out under the Montreal protocol, according to the company.
