Programme for Phasing Out Ozone Depleting Substances

Project Summary

The project is to implement a comprehensive National Programme for Recovery / Recycling of refrigerants in the refrigeration and air conditioning sub-sectors as part of the Refrigerant Management Plan (RMP). Five training seminars for technicians performing repairs, maintenance and installation of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment will be held to familiarize all involved with the RMP and the National Recovery & Recycling Programme. The project will provide 50 recovery equipment and 50 manual recovery pumps and recovery bags to be distributed to the larger CFC-12 users. The project will also provide 5 sets of recycling equipment strategically distributed around the country. A system for monitoring the quantity and quality of the CFC recycled is planned (although it forms part of another parallel project), to ensure the success of the National Recovery & Recycling Programme.
