based group Ozone Action, which is fighting a two-front battle against Republican plans to kill the Montreal Treaty on chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) phase-outs and Administration attempts to permit farmers in California and Florida (two key electoral states) to continue using methyl bromide, another ozone depleter
But it is an ozone depleter
and is being phased out of use.
AFFI first commented on the phaseout of methyl bromide last May when the EPA was contemplating classifying the substance as an ozone depleter
Also, 1,1,1 trichloroethane will be unavailable shortly, since it is an ozone depleter
And at the end of the year, The EPA actually asked DuPont to slow down its phase out of CFC-12, an ozone depleter
, on behalf o the auto industry, which still wants to use the chemical in it air conditioners.
Molders take note: After the 11th of this month, companies using any CFCs or HCFCs in their processes will have to print warning labels either on their products or shipping containers, depending on the type of ozone depleter
Previous studies have demonstrated that tetrabenazine, a dopamine depleter
that works by selectively blocking vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2), improves the symptoms associated with a number of hyperkinetic movement disorders.
The majour depleters
of the ozone layer are manmade chemicals like chlorofluorocarbons, bromofluorocarbons and water vapor.
Zaelke says a movement has begun among the Montreal Protocol signatories to address HFCs even though they are not ozone depleters
, on the grounds that increased HFC emissions are a result of decisions made under the Protocol.
This halocarbon reclamation facility will be state of the art with the latest, most advanced equipment for the reclamation and management of Halons and refrigerants that are either ozone depleters
or high in global warming potential.
Check hospital records to confirm medications, and be cautious about diagnosing PD--especially if patients have taken anti-psychotics, metoclopramide, or dopamine depleters
such as reserpine, because the PD symptoms might resolve with time.
The technique could be an alternative to conventional fumigation, as some of the gases used in fumigation are being restricted because they are ozone depleters
and in many cases plant and factories have to be closed down while fumigation takes place.
