Jordan - Ozone Depleting Substances HCFC Phase-Out Project : environmental assessment : Environmental management framework : executive summary (English)

The development objective of the Ozone Depleting Substances Hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) Phase-Out Project for Jordan is to support Jordan in its overall efforts to meet its Montreal protocol HCFC phase-out obligations, and to strengthen the capacity of the responsible government entities to continue to effectively implement the Montreal protocol. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: (1) enterprises’ managers and operational staff will be trained annually on environment and health and safety requirements during the foam conversion under the project; (2) safety audits before the start-up of normal foam production using hydrocarbons will be carried out by technical consultants hired by the National Ozone Unit (NOU); and (3) one of the staff in the project management unit (PMU) in the NOU will be dedicated to supporting conversions in the facilities, including environmental safety concerns and training associated with technology changes.
