Al Balushi also pointed out that international organisations concerned with the environment have fixed 2020 as the latest year for replacing Chlorofluorocarbon Gas with Hydrocarbon Gas Technology.
Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC), halons, methyl bromide, carbon tetrachloride (CTC), HCFC, hydro bromofluorocarbons (HBFCs) are ozone depleting substances.
The Montreal Protocol, often hailed as the most successful international environmental agreement ever enacted, has led to declines in chlorofluorocarbons and an increase in stratospheric ozone.
Chlorofluorocarbons are chemicals that are used in perfumes and air freshener cans because their exceedingly volatile characteristic, however, these chlorofluorocarbons are non-decomposable hence they result in the depletion of ozone layer: our only protection against the Ultraviolent rays of the sun whose entrance results in massive rise of the temperature of the Earth.
The work suggests that about half of the ozone hole's recent shrinkage resulted from a drop in chlorofluorocarbons in the atmosphere; the remainder stemmed from weather changes.
From 2011, he said, the Ministry of Climate Change was phasing out Hydro chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), adding that there was no indigenous production of HCFCs and Pakistan was importing ODS to meet the industrial requirements.
ISLAMABAD -- Environmental experts on Wednesday termed rapid increase of greenhouse gases (Chlorofluorocarbons) as a major cause of rising temperature in the federal capital.
Summary: Chlorofluorocarbons are being used as coolants since the last more than fifty years, and their increasing concentration in atmosphere causes the ozone layer depletion, therefore to develop a sensor for detection of chlorofluorocarbons is environmentally significant.
However, the depletion of ozone in the atmosphere due largely to commercial and industrial use of chemicals containing chlorofluorocarbons has a powerful impact on large swaths of the Southern Hemisphere, the researchers found.
In the framework of Regulation 2037/2000 EC on substances that deplete the ozone layer, and in compliance with commitments made under the Montreal Protocol on these same products and the protection of the ozone layer, the EU has scheduled the gradual abandonment of the production and use of chlorofluorocarbons, other fully halogenated chlorofluorocarbons, halons, carbon tetrachloride, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, hydrobromofluorocarbons and bromochloromethane.
In response to a federal push to remove chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) from asthma inhalers by December 2008, some manufacturers have already stopped production of CFC-containing inhalers and are employing a new, more environmentally friendly propellant, hydrofluoroalkane.
Another major problem is the toxic nature of many of the substances, including arsenic, bromine, cadmium, Halogenated flame retardant, hydro Chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), lead, mercury and PCBs.
