FAQ

Q.There was the Kigali Amendment. Will HFCs be banned under the Montreal Protocol?

A.HFCs will not be banned under the Montreal Protocol.

We can continue to use HFCs, though it is scheduled to phase down total GWP of HFC (weight of HFC in Kg x GWP value).

Q.Does the Montreal Protocol require reducing the amounts of HFCs?

A.HFCs will be phased down based on total GWP of HFC in CO2 equivalent (weight of HFC in Kg x GWP value), not based on its amounts (kg).

It is possible to produce and consume larger amount (kg) of lower GWP refrigerant, compared to higher GWP refrigerant, in the same quota in CO2 equivalent.

Q.Is CO2 emission amount restricted under the Montreal Protocol?

A.No, the Montreal Protocol will phase down total GWP of HFC (weight of HFC in Kg x GWP value).

CO2 emission amount is restricted under the Paris Agreement.

Q.In order to achieve the Kigali Amendment, will it work to conduct just conversion to low GWP refrigerants?

A.The Kigali Amendment emphasize not only conversion to low GWP refrigerants but also energy efficiency and safety together.
