Canada proposes HFC phase-down plan

25/02/2017
Shortly after the Kigali global agreement to phase down HFCs, the Canadian government has published on November 26, 2016 a proposal to phase-down its production and imports of these greenhouse gases (GHGs). The proposed amendments to existing legislation on Ozone-depleting Substances and Halocarbon Alternatives Regulations would control HFCs through the phase-down of consumption of bulk HFCs complemented by controls on specific products containing or designed to contain HFCs, including refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment, foams and aerosols.
 
They call for a 10% reduction by 2019. Reductions would step up rather steeply in the ensuing years: 35% by 2024, 70% by 2030 and ultimately 85% by 2036 (in CO2 equivalent) in line with the Kigali agreement.
