CFC markets in Latin America (English)

This report provides an assessment of Latin America market sectors engaged in the supply and consumption of CFCs. The report was designated to identify those countries that are at greater risk of falling out of compliance Montreal, Protocol obligations, and the specific market sectors in greatness need of project assistance to expedite phase-out. To this end, the information presented identifies the main producers and importers of CFCs and CFC-alternatives in Latin America, as well of the quality of these substances used across each of the consuming sectors. The information contained in this report is based on direct information obtained through contact with importers and distributors in the LAC Region, National Ozone Units (NOUs).and available published literature. Finally, countries must maintain and strengthen institutions and procedures for collecting and reporting CFCs and CFC-substitutes supply and demand data, both on national and regional levels. Development and use of models or tracking systems should be considered. This will allow for improvement of the various phase-out actions, monitoring of the program achievements, and effective management. Also, regional awareness and support of the phase-out plans should be improved through the publication and promotion of the phase-out schedule for CFCs. In particular, this will discourage the purchasing of new CFC refrigeration and air conditioning equipment.
