Solomon Islands: Customs authorities in the Solomon Islands have reported their second seizure of the illegal CFC refrigerant R12 this year.
The local Solomon Star reveals that the most recent illegal import interception involved five cylinders of the ozone depleting CFC refrigerant.
Earlier in the year, authorities seized 24 cylinders of the gas, which had been labelled as R134A .
CFCs have been banned in the Solomon Islands since 2007.
