TT-Pilot (GEF 4): Phase Out HCFCs and Promotion of HFC-free Energy Efficient Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Systems in the Russian Federation Through Technology Transfer

Project Summary

The primary objective is the direct phase out 600 ODP tonnes of HCFCs in the foam and refrigeration manufacturing sectors in the Russian Federation to meet the 2015 Montreal Protocol target. The GHG emissions reduction resulting from the phase out of HCFCs will be approximately 15.6 MMT CO2. The secondary objective of the project is to introduce more energy efficient designs, through technology transfer, during the conversion of refrigeration and air conditioning manufacturing facilities. By doing the project aims to achieve indirect GHG emissions reduction through reduced electricity consumption in the commercial and industrial refrigeration sectors, is approximately 10 MMT CO2 in 5 years.
