Phaseout of Ozone Depleting Substances

Project Summary

This project will phaseout direct annual consumption of at least 806 metric tons of weighted ozone-depleting substance potential, or about 77% of Belarus' 1994 weighted consumption, through phaseout of CFCs in three refrigeration manufacturing and servicing subprojects, and five subprojects in the solvent industry. In addition, it will support a small program in technology transfer and training for the fire protection sector, and a national ODS Phaseout unit.
