  CFCs are refrigerants that erode the ozone layer, and environmental groups have been working since to phase them out under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. Molina is a co-recipient of the Nobel Prize in chemistry for his role in revealing threats to the planet's protective ozone layer from freons, commonly found in spray cans and refrigerants.

The purpose of this book is to provide a comprehensive strategy for the phaseout of equipment that uses CFC-refrigerants. The book provides the reader with essential information on alternatives to ozone-depleting refrigerants, critical data that must be gathered to make informed decisions regarding equipment retrofit or replacement, and an. Unfortunately, the widespread use of R12 appeared to be significantly degrading the Earth’s ozone layer, potentially causing a worldwide health crisis. By international agreement in (the Montreal Protocol), the use and production of CFCs such as R12 began to be phased out, with automobile manufacturers required to stop using it by the.

  The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) OzonAction WhatGas? application is an information and identification tool for refrigerant gases: ozone depleting substances (ODS), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and other alternatives. It is intended to provide a number of stakeholders, including customs officers, Montreal Protocol National Ozone Officers and refrigeration and air . This guide provides a better understanding of alternative refrigerants and system performance effects resulting from the use of refrigerants that have little or no effect on the ozone layer and a minimal impact on global warming.

Without the ozone layer, we'd all need to wear a lot more Refrigerants & the ozone layer. Beginning in the s, CFCs were widely used as refrigerants in home refrigerators and air conditioners, cleaning solvents, and as foam-blowing agents for making things like egg cartons and coffee cups.

While NIST (actually, then still the National Bureau of Standards) wasn’t yet concerned with finding replacements. The Montreal Protocol () identified refrigerants that were destroying the ozone layer and those with the potential of destroying it.

The Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) was defined in order to classify refrigerants. As they were the worst ones, R11 and R12 are assigned a value of unity, i.e., ODP-R11≡1 and ODP-R12≡1.

For federally regulated ozone depleting refrigerants follow this flow chart. For state regulated ozone depleting refrigerants follow this flow chart. Beginning inCARB will also require annual reports for specific pieces of equipment.

The annual reports are to be submitted on the following schedule. The Vienna Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer () and its Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer () are international agreements that were adopted to deal with the biggest environmental threat of the time: the discovery of a hole in the ozone layer.

The ozone layer is a region of high Refrigerants & the ozone layer concentration in the stratosphere, 20 to 30 kilometres above. A guide to refrigerants, both synthetic and natural CFCs are largely to blame for the hole in the ozone layer.

The Montreal Protocol was drawn up in in response to depletion of the ozone. stratospheric ozone layer. Ra, while not ozone depleting, is classified as a Greenhouse Gas (GHG). The gases in this category are believed to be a potential cause of climate change and are assigned a Global Warming Potential (GWP) factor based on the level of impact they may have.

The lower the GWP rating of a particular refrigerant, the. What is the ozone layer and why is it important to us on Earth. Thin layer of R in the atmosphere that filters UV. Protective shield for Earth from the sun's harmful ultraviolent (UV) rays in the stratosphere layer that extends about 6 to 30 miles above earth c.

Thin layer of CFC and HCFC in the atmosphere that filters UV. Production of R, the last refrigerant sold in the U.S. that depletes the Earth’s protective ozone layer, has been ramping down each year toward a.

HFCs are safer for the ozone layer but not necessarily for the planet. They're nea times as potent as carbon dioxide. Unless their growth is. The Ozone Layer. Ozone is a simple molecule consisting of three oxygen atoms. It's found primarily in the stratosphere, which extends from 6 to 30 miles above Earth’s surface.

The production of R refrigerant is expected to be phased out of production by This year alone, production of this refrigerant is expected to be reduced by 47% and by 85% by The new refrigerant, RA, is designed and constructed to be used for RA systems and R systems cannot be retrofitted to operate with RA.

Ozone layer. At this time the supply of CFC refrigerants is practically exhausted. HCFC (hydrochlorofluorocarbon refrigerants) do less damage to the Ozone Layer than CFCs but are still detrimental and a cause of global warming.

Currently it is intended that. Start studying refrigerant and recovery quiz. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools. the ozone layer filters out most of the suns harmful. technician b says that chlorine atoms react with ozone to produce chlorine monoxide.

Chemicals, including chlorine and bromine, which come from refrigerants and other industrial sources, trigger reactions on the surfaces of those clouds that chew away at the ozone layer.

Decades later, scientists would discover that chlorine, a component of CFC and HCFC refrigerants, is damaging to the ozone layer. As a result, R22, the standard residential air conditioner refrigerant, was included in the Montreal Protocol list of substances that were to be phased out of production over time for new air conditioners and.

"Because the claim 'Contains no CFC's' may imply to reasonable consumers that the product does not harm the ozone layer, the claim is deceptive," the commission's guidelines say. Refrigerant Recovery and Recycling: Review and Quiz 3 The Next Generation of Air Conditioning Service We’ve come a long way since the discovery of the infamous ozone hole over Antarctica.

Due in part to your valiant efforts as a service technician, NASA now forecasts that the ozone layer will likely return to its early s status around The stratospheric ozone layer is a layer of gas 10 to 35 miles above the Earth's surface that shields the Earth from harmful ultraviolet (UV-B) radiation.

Chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs and other ozone-depleting substances are gradually destroying the ozone layer.

This process. This book is only for Section Motor Vehicle A/C Technician Certification. Section addresses the mobile motor vehicle air conditioning industry. The sale of small containers of refrigerant fewer than 20 lb., including the "one pound" cans, is restricted to only people certified in Section The purpose of (Mobile Vehicle Air.

Ozone depletion consists of two related events observed since the late s: a steady lowering of about four percent in the total amount of ozone in Earth's atmosphere (the ozone layer), and a much larger springtime decrease in stratospheric ozone around Earth's polar regions.

The latter phenomenon is referred to as the ozone are also springtime polar tropospheric ozone depletion. Blends of the HFC refrigerants, in the first category of alternative refrigerants, have been considered as the favourite candidates for R22 alternatives.

HFCs are synthetic fluids entirely harmless to the ozone layer since they do not contain chlorine. These fluids are the most used substitutes for CFCs and HCFCs. The research on refrigerant. At its most depleted, around the turn of the 21st century, the ozone layer had declined by about 5%.

Today, the “hole in the ozone” over the South Pole is showing clear signs of recovery.
