Dechen Tsering, Regional Director and Representative for Asia and the Pacific, currently Pakistan, appreciated the commitment of Pakistan in adherence to phasing out of Ozone Depleting Substances under Montreal Protocol.
As a signatory, Bangladesh is committed to phasing out hydro chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and other ozone depleting substances. Ozone is a gas that is naturally present in the atmosphere of the earth, which restricts the harmful ultraviolet rays coming from sun and thus safeguards the living organisms.
He said in Botswana ozone depleting substances were widely used as coolants in the refrigeration and air conditioning sectors, as propellants in aerosols, for fire-fighting purposes, fumigants for perishables and control of pests in agricultural applications.
The Protocol, which Pakistan signed in 1992, has ultimate objective of elimination of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS).
The industry representatives from major companies such as Dawlance, Haier, also detailed the contributions made by their respective companies in adapting to the innovative technologies in order to reduce the consumption of HCFC in different industrial applications so to minimize their company`s impact on ozone layer and contributing their positive role in phasing out Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS).
India's per capita consumption of Ozone Depleting Substances is at present less than 3 grams and did not cross 20 gms between 1995-97 as against 300 gms permitted under the Protocol.
All of these ozone depleting substances contain either chlorine or bromine (substances containing only fluorine do not harm the ozone layer).
Qatar's total consumption of ozone depleting substances surged 43% to 2,027 metric tonnes (MT) in 2010 mainly due to a three-fold rise in hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFC), official figures show.
Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Ramon Paje said the government has decided to set a limit on the import of hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), a group of ozone depleting substances (ODS), starting 2013.
The Center is tasked to ensure compliance with the commitments undertaken by Kyrgyzstan after signing the Montreal Protocol on ozone depleting substances and to implement the state program on ceased use of ozone depleting substances.
He expressed these views while addressing an international seminar "Phase out and Impact of Ozone Depleting Substances and Energy Efficiency in Defence Applications" at a hotel in Bhurban.
Dr Park said to achieve phase-out it was also important to have transnational co-operation mechanisms on regulation enforcements on the trade of Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS).
