RWANDA: Almost 200 nations reached agreement this morning on a complex phase down of HFC refrigerants.
 
The historic Kigali amendment to the Montreal Protocol finally adds HFCs to the process which so successfully administered the global phase-out of HCFCs.
 
It creates three categories of countries. Developed countries will cap and phase down HFCs staring in 2019. The developing countries, including China - by far the largest HFC consumer and producer - freezing HFC consumption in 2024 and start making cuts in 2029.
 
A third deal was struck for a small number of countries including India, Kuwait, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia. They will cap consumption in 2028, beginning cuts in usage in 2032.
