Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar presenting certificates to students at the International Day for Preservation of the Ozone layer on September 16.
The use of HFCs became popular in the world after the phase out of the ChloroFluoroCarbons (CFCs) which were found to be the cause of the destruction of the ozone hole over Antarctica. Nations around the world have now called for using the institutions and expertise of the Montreal Protocol (the protocol used for phasing out CFCs), to bring down the use of HFCs.
The theme for International Ozone Day this year is “HCFC Phase Out: A Unique Opportunity.” With the Montreal Protocol’s Financial Mechanism providing increased funding especially to developing countries, the HCFC phase-out presents with a unique opportunity to acquire cutting-edge technologies that not only eliminate ozone-depleting compounds but does so in a way that lowers energy costs and maximizes climate benefits.
