Abstract
The paper is about alternative chemicals. The substitution, of less ozone-depleting chemicals wherever it is cost effective and technically feasible, is expected because of anticipated future limitations on production and consumption of the fully halogenated chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and halons (fluorocarbons containing bromine atoms) covered by the Montreal Protocol. Certain alternative chemicals (e.g., HCFC-22 and methyl chloroform) are already used in applications other than as CFC substitutes. Projected future consumption of alternative chemicals includes such non-substitution use. Study results indicate that the 50 percent reduction in weighted CFC/halon consumption (weighted for ozone depletion potential) required by the Protocol in 1998 could initially be achieved by alternative chemicals alone. However, alternative processes or products not requiring either the controlled substances or their substitute chemicals and/or substantial recovery and reuse of the chemicals would be needed to maintain the 50 percent level of reduction in the longer term.
