India Lunches New Plan to Phase Out Ozone Killer 

Adhering to its global commitment, India has launched its latest plan to phase out a key refrigerant, hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC), under its efforts to end the use of ozone-depleting substances (ODS) that harm the environment and human health Though the plan is meant for the 2017-23 period, the goal is to phase out consumption and manufacturing of HCFC by 2030. HCFCs are currently used in sectors including refrigeration, air conditioning and foam manufacturing.

In 1987 over 190 countries had reached an agreement under the Montreal Protocol to phase out ODS in a time-bound manner. India has already successfully phased out the earlier generation of refrigerants, chlorofluorocarbons.
