Phaseout of Ozone Depleting Substances

Project Summary

This project will phaseout direct annual consumption of at least 1054 metric tons of weighted ozone-depleting substance potential, or about 55% of Poland's 1994 weighted consumption, through phaseout of CFCs in three refrigeration subprojects, two subprojects in other industries requiring foam-blowing, and one subproject in the medical aerosol industry. In addition, it will partially fund a non-profit foundation, Prozon, that will collect and process used refrigerants, primarily CFC-12. Finally, it will support both training in alternatives to halons in fire protection systems, and a national ODS Phaseout project management unit.
