Hydrofluorocarbons Agreement

CFCs or fluorocarbons are super-greenhouse gases manufactured for use in cold, climate, foam bubbles, aerosols, fire protection and solvents. Unlike most other greenhouse gases, gas plants are not waste, but are produced intentionally. HPV was designed as alternatives to ozone-depleting substances that flow under the Montreal Protocol. Unfortunately, CFCs have a global warming potential 1000 to 3000 times higher than CO2, and their use has increased from almost nothing in 1990 to 1,100 million tonnes of CO2. HFC emissions (excluding HFC 23) currently account for about 1% of global greenhouse gas emissions and up to 3% in many industrialized countries. If these emissions are not controlled, they will increase all greenhouse gas emissions by 7-19% by 2050 and will take most, if not all, of the mitigation measures promised so far by countries. Unlike other greenhouse gases in the Paris Agreement, fluorocarbons are included in other international negotiations. [4] An unusual coalition of economic and environmental groups – including the National Association of Manufacturers, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, FreedomWorks and the Natural Resources Defense Council – Trump administration officials have been pressing for months to support the addition of Kigali, an agreement in nearly 200,000 countries in 2016 to reduce the use of a group of organic compounds that deplete the ozone layer and advance global warming. Some conservative organizations, including the Heritage Foundation and the Competitive Enterprise Institute, have tried to block Senate approval of the Treaty. Countries have accepted an amendment that will lead industrialized countries to begin reducing their use of HFC from 2019. The new agreement contains flexibility to meet the different capabilities of the 170 countries with three separate routes.

Trump`s EPA chief says the agency should focus on economic recovery, not international climate agreements, but the deal would also prevent states and local governments from regulating CFCs for uses considered essential under the agreement. These include applications in medical inhalers, sprays used by hikers to repel bears, semiconductor manufacturing and military applications considered critical to business. Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a resolution on the adoption of an amendment to the Montreal Protocol on ozone-depleting substances, paving the way for a significant reduction in the consumption of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), which are super-gases. This will significantly reduce the impact of anthropoship on the environment by 2036 and ensure that Russia meets obligations under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement.
