EFCTC POSITION PAPER ON THE EVALUATION OF THE EU ODS REGULATION (1005/2009)
The evaluation process of the ODS Regulation provides an opportunity to streamline the regulation to reflect the successes that have been achieved through the implementation of the current ODS Regulation 1005/2009. This would include the elimination of several time-limited provisions and repealed legal texts.  Read more here.

Welcome to www.fluorocarbons.org our new website, where you will find all relevant fluorocarbon information easily.
We offer a “Learn About” section which includes :
“Climate change, Global warming, & HFCs”

The site also provides summary information as infographics, a revised Log-book to comply with the F-Gas Regulation 517/2014, a new Figaroo – F-Gas Regulation Observatory On-line section following the entry in this F-Gas Regulation, among others.

EFCTC PRESENTS A NEW VIDEO : “Refrigerant Gases Explained””
The video explains the use as refrigerant gas of CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs, which have been widely used in refrigeration and now HFOs are joining HFCs as the fluorocarbon gases of choice for a wide range of applications.

ANOTHER NEW BROCK & OLLIE VIDEO
The F-Gas Regulation and the Kigali Amendment
This new Brock & Ollie video explains the Kigali Amendment and how it relates to the F-Gas Regulation : The Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol requires countries to gradually reduce HFC use to reach a reduction of 80-85 per cent by the late 2040s. It is a good regulation that shows that industry is at the forefront of protecting the climate whilst providing important benefits to society like refrigeration, air-conditioning, foam and insulation.
