DescriptionSixty-five percent of Bulgaria's 1993, annual, weighted ozone-depleting substance consumption will be phased out (468 metric tons ODP) through sub-projects in the refrigeration, foam-blowing and solvents sectors. A recycling and servicing component will phase out further ozone-depleting substances already in use in refrigerator, and a third component will strengthen the national Phase-out Task Force.
Implementation StatusMoE formally informed WB that on 4/30/00 the implementation of the Nat'l ODS phase-out was successfully concluded, resulting in the complete phasing-out of substances use in the country. Therefore, Bulgaria is now in full compliance with its obligation under the Vienna Convention to protect the ozone and the MP on Substances, that deplete the Ozone layer. ICR was completed on 6/28/00
