In the EU there will be an 80% cut in the consumption of HFCs by 2030 – that is required by the EU F-Gas Regulation. There are on-going international negotiations for a global HFC phase down under the Montreal Protocol. In April 2015 there was a technical workshop held in Bangkok to discuss low GWP alternatives to HFCs. Gluckman Consulting helped the UNEP Ozone Secretariat prepare Fact Sheets about the various uses of HFCs and the possible low GWP alternatives. These Fact Sheets can be downloaded from this web page.
