Fluorocarbons are used as feedstocks, as refrigerants, as solvents and as blowing agents for insulation plastic foams. The Sector Group’s main objective is to monitor the constantly changing legislation related to HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons), PFCs (perfluorinated carbons) and SF6 (sulphur hexafluoride), CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons), HCFCs (hydrochlorofluorocarbons), in the EU and at global level.Read more
It is widely recognised that the Montreal Protocol could not have succeeded in the way it has without the availability of HFCs as refrigerants and for other applications.
Major suppliers of flat panel displays, installed in TV LCD panels, computers, monitors, etc., have reduced by more than 90 % F-Gas emissions in dry etching and chemical vapour deposition processes in the electronic sector, which use PFCs, NF3 or SF6.
EFCTC calls on the European Council and Parliament to come to a first reading agreement and adopt promptly the revision of the European F-Gas Regulation that is currently in trilogue negotiations.
