The report describes the use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in the production of foam plastics and foam plastic products and discusses alternatives to reduce CFC use. The plastic foams which are made with CFCs are; polyurethane; phenolic; polyolefin (polyethylene and polypropylene); and extruded polystyrene. In this report, a chapter is devoted to each of the four types of foam made with CFCs. Each chapter discusses the types and applications of the foam, its production process, the use of CFCs in its production process, and alternatives for reducing CFC use in the manufacture of the foam.
