Destruction of Non-CO₂ Greenhouse Gases from Refrigerants in Thailand
Ozone Depleting Substance Destruction
Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) is around 10,900 times more potent as a GHG than CO₂. Hence, it got banned in the late 1980s. However, old stockpiles remain and pose a risk to the environment. This project manages a seized stockpile of these CFC refrigerants in Thailand and destructs them permanently.
Refrigerants from chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) are around 10,900 times more potent greenhouse gases than CO₂. Since CFCs played a crucial role in the depletion of the ozone layer, these refrigerants have been banned globally since the late 1980s with the Montreal Protocol. Nevertheless, old stockpiles of these refrigerants around the globe pose an enormous threat to the environment as they are slowly leaking super-potent CFC gases into the atmosphere.
To address this challenge, this project cooperates with the government of Thailand to manage a stockpile of refrigerants that came into the country illegally and were seized by the customs department. The project aggregates the gas and destroys it at an incineration firm in Thailand that meets the regulations for the destruction of ozone-depleting substances defined in the Montreal Protocol.
