Thailand - Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFC) Phaseout Project (English)

The objective of the Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFC) Phase-out Project for Thailand is to reduce HCFC consumption in the air-conditioning and foam sectors in order to contribute to Thailand’s efforts to meet its HCFC consumption phase-out obligations under the first phase of the program (2014-2018). There are four components to the project, the first component being investment in HCFC Consumption Reductions. This component includes: provision of Sub-grants to Beneficiary Enterprises in the foam sector to carry out HCFC consumption reduction subprojects; and carry out demonstration subprojects to perform in-house testing of new non-HCFC-141b foam systems. The second component is the technical assistance. This component includes: carry out of public awareness programs to promote energy efficiency and low global warming potential technology in the air-conditioning and foam sectors; and provision of technical assistance to 12 air-conditioning manufacturers to convert their production facilities to HFC-32 technology and to develop proper installation and servicing procedures. The third component is the project management. This component includes: provision of technical assistance to the DIW-PMU for managing, supervising, monitoring and reporting on the implementation of activities under Component 2 (a) – (c) of the project; and provision of technical assistance to the DIW-PMU for the development of sector-specific regulations and policy, such as, inter alia, rules governing HCFC imports and exports and a ban on the use of HCFC in the air-conditioning and foam manufacturing sectors. Finally, the fourth component is the strengthening of the national ozone unit.
