HPMP Implementation: Update on Technological Developments
The 19th Meeting of the Parties in 2007 agreed the historical adjustment to the Montreal Protocol (Decision XIX/6) accelerating the phase-out schedule for HCFC consumption and production. It also encourages Parties to promote the selection of alternatives to HCFCs that minimize environmental impacts, in particular impacts on climate, as well as meeting other health, safety and economic considerations. With the implementation of the HPMP, the regular update of the alternative development is essential for the NOU as well as the industry to take informed decisions, which will affect the path of the phaseout.
This webinar aims to update NOUs, the industry and other key stakeholders about the latest development in both refrigeration/Air conditioning sector, and foam sector of alternatives and alternative technologies to HCFCs.
