Study points to problems in EU HFC plan

The phase-down schedule proposed by the European Commission appears to be too generous, according to a leaked consultancy study

A quota system proposed by the European Commission to gradually reduce quantities of bulk hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) on the market appears to be too generous, according to a leaked government consultancy study.

The commission wants to reduce bulk HFC supplies to 21% of 2008-11 levels by 2030.

Under the EU plan, the maximum quantity of F-gases placed on the market would be frozen in 2015 and limited to 93% of that quantity in 2017. SKM Enviros says these first reduction steps will be “relatively easy to achieve”.
