UK Plans Limits for Super Warming HFCs

Government have approved the Kigali amendment to the UN Montreal Protocol, becoming one of the first of 150 countries to limit the release of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).

The amendment was agreed in October 2016 to reduce HFC emissions by 85% by 2036.

HFCs are thought to be thousands of times more warming to the atmosphere than carbon dioxide and are primarily found in refrigeration and air conditioning units.

Without further planning, it is claimed that HFC release could rise a further 11% by 2050.

For the UK, the amendment adds a further 44 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions reduction as the EU is already committed to reducing HFC emissions by 79% by 2030.

Michael Gove MP, Environment Secretary, stated: “Adopting this ambitious target marks the UK as a world leader in tackling climate change.”

“This deal will reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by the equivalent of around 70 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide by 2050.”

“This is more than 600 coal-fired power stations would produce during that time.”
