New paper released by CEEW at the Montreal protocol meeting in Bangkok today
26 Jun 2013

CEEW, in collaboration with its partners, released a report at the 33rd Open Ended Working Group Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol in Bangkok that provides the business case for climate-friendlier air conditioning in India. Closely following up the visit of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry who called for a partnership with India to phase down “super greenhouse gases” known as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), the report, "Cooling India with Less Warming: The Business Case for Phasing Down HFCs in Room and Vehicle Air Conditioners", highlights opportunities that exist for India.

The report reveals that India has a unique opportunity to “leapfrog” outdated refrigerant technology and build domestic and export industries based on more climate friendly alternatives and more energy efficient equipment designs. HFC production and consumption are projected to grow significantly in India as companies phase-out ozone-depleting hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) under the Montreal Protocol treaty and consider replacing them with ozone-friendly but polluting HFCs.
