The opening ceremony was sponsored by Mohsen bin Khamis Al Balushi, advisor to the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, who said the seminar explained the use of Hydrocarbon Gas Technology as an alternative to Chlorofluorocarbon Gas, which is less expensive and has fewer environmental side effects than the use of hydrocarbon gas.
They said that Chlorofluorocarbon Gas which is used in most air conditioning and refrigeration, heating and other equipment operating under pressure gas systems is a chemical toxic gas and harmful to health that might cause skin cancer and some respiratory diseases as it is harmful to the environment and the ozone layer.
He concluded that it is healthy and has no side effects on the human health, friendly to the environment and the ozone layer, gives the best performance at high temperatures as it operates efficiently at higher than 65 C outside temperatures, and the use of this technique is not required for service and maintenance as chlorofluorocarbon gas, according to ONA.

Implemented in 1989, it banned ozone-depleting chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons worldwide.
Another SDPI expert Kashif Salik said Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are greenhouse gases.
Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are greenhouse gases," said SDPI environmentalist Kashif Salik.
As part of its commitment by Montreal Protocol concerning the non-use of substances that cause ozone depletion, in the beginning of this year the ministry limited the use of chlorofluorocarbons by setting specific rations for the companies that use this substance.
Summary: Chlorofluorocarbons are being used as coolants since the last more than fifty years, and their increasing concentration in atmosphere causes the ozone layer depletion, therefore to develop a sensor for detection of chlorofluorocarbons is environmentally significant.
In the framework of Regulation 2037/2000 EC on substances that deplete the ozone layer, and in compliance with commitments made under the Montreal Protocol on these same products and the protection of the ozone layer, the EU has scheduled the gradual abandonment of the production and use of chlorofluorocarbons, other fully halogenated chlorofluorocarbons, halons, carbon tetrachloride, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, hydrobromofluorocarbons and bromochloromethane.
Another major problem is the toxic nature of many of the substances, including arsenic, bromine, cadmium, Halogenated flame retardant, hydro Chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), lead, mercury and PCBs.
China and Venezuela have pledged to phase out the use and production of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) by the end of 2007, two years earlier than required by the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.
That's thanks to a law in 1987 banning chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), or ozone-chewing chemicals, from aerosol cans and refrigerators.
But wait," you say, "I thought we took care of the environmental problems of air conditioning refrigerants a long time ago when we replaced ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbons (CHC-12) with hydrofluorocarbons (HFC-134a).
