International Technical Meeting on HCFC phase-out

  • Start date : 05/04/2008 00:00:00
  • End date : 06/04/2008 23:59:59

The accelerated phase-out schedule for HCFCs recently agreed on at the 19th Meeting of the Parties of the Montreal Protocol places increased urgency on the need to identify cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternatives. To support developing countries with this challenge the European Commission organised a technical meeting held on 5-6 April 2008 in Montreal, Canada.

The meeting offered an early opportunity for preparing the implementation of Decision XIX/6 of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol by gathering and providing information on cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternatives to HCFCs in the refrigeration/air-conditioning and foam sectors. The meeting also provided information on the technical tools for implementing viable alternatives.
