EFCTC Notes on European Parliament/Council Agreement on the revision of F-gas regulation

The final agreed text was approved on 17th December by the European Member States ambassadors. It will then be published and sent to the Parliament and Council for final approval. This will require a vote in the Parliament Environment Committee and then the Parliament plenary which will probably be in February or March 2014 and it will, afterwards, require approval by the European Council. Neither approvals are likely to be controversial – the vote in both is either “yes/no”; changes (other than legal corrections) cannot be proposed/made....

EFCTC Factsheet on published refrigerant-related accidents

Alternative refrigerants or HFCs: an obvious choice? The refrigeration and air-conditioning industry selects refrigerants on the basis of a number of criteria which include safety, energy efficiency and environmental impact. Fluorocarbons are often perceived as environmentally unfriendly due to their relatively high global warming potential values....

Rushing F-gas reduction will damage business and take away jobs

Regulators should not move too fast on reducing the use of fluorinated gas (or F-gases) refrigerants, as the cost implications for many retailers and wholesalers could significantly damage their businesses, writes Christian Verschueren....

Fluoride in the Atmosphere: A very small contribution from HFCs

Fluorine, in the form of fluoride ion, is found in many rocks and minerals and most soils. It comprises 0.06% of the Earth's crust (which, although it does not seem much, is actually about twice the known amount of fossil fuel carbon). Fluorides are released into the environment naturally through the weathering and dissolution of minerals, in emissions from volcanoes and in marine aerosols....

Revised Global Warming Potentials

In preparation for the Fifth Scientific Assessment Report (AR5) by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the above paper systematically reviews the published literature concerning the Radiative Efficiencies (REs) of halogen containing greenhouse gases. It also uses revised atmospheric lifetimes for carbon dioxide and so changes the global warming potentials calculated for  a range of compounds....
