Phase down of Hydrofluorocarbons | Environment-Friendly Alternatives

India has consciously chosen a path for environment-friendly and energy-efficient technologies. In a significant move, the Union Cabinet has approved the ratification of the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the ozone layer for phase-down of hydrofluorocarbons.

Before moving ahead, let us first understand the Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the ozone layer.

It is an international environmental treaty that aims at the protection of the ozone layer by phasing out the production and consumption of man-made chemicals which are often referred to as ozone-depleting substances. India became a Party to the Montreal Protocol on substances that deplete the ozone layer on 19 June 1992 and since then, the nation has ratified the amendments to the Montreal Protocol.

With the present approval of the Cabinet, India will be ratifying the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol for the phase-down of Hydrofluorocarbons. Under the Kigali Amendment, Parties to the Montreal Protocol will phase down the production and consumption of Hydrofluorocarbons, commonly known as HFCs.
