      Destruction of Ozone Depleting Substances Daniel A. Reifsnyder, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Environment and Sustainable Development Remarks to the 28th Meeting of the Open Ended Working Group of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.   The ozone hole (purple and blue) covered much of Antarctica in The Montreal Protocol has dramatically reduced emissions of ozone-depleting substances to .

      Forty years ago, scientists warned that a hole in the layer of ozone surrounding the earth could have serious effects on human health and the environment. This problem is being solved thanks to a global agreement to stop the use of ozone-depleting chemicals that damage the ozone layer. But now scientists are concerned that the substances used to replace these ozone-depleting chemicals are. Ozone is a form of oxygen in which three atoms of oxygen combine to form a single molecule of ozone. It normally is not found in the lower atmosphere. It exists in the stratosphere between 20 and 50 kilometers above the surface. The presence of ozone is of singular importance because it filters out the incoming ultraviolet (UV) radiation and thus acts as a screen against ultraviolent radiation.

      J.H. Diaz, in Climate Vulnerability, Other Environmental Factors Affecting Stratospheric Ozone Levels. The most significant factors responsible for ozone layer thinning and perforation are the industrial production and atmospheric disposal of halogenated hydrocarbons with the release of ozone-depleting reactive chlorine and bromine atoms. Prohibiting or strictly controlling the use of banned or restricted hazardous materials, such as hexavalent chrome and ozone-depleting substances. The PM and the Systems Engineer ensure ESOH is addressed during the Technology Maturation and Risk Reduction (TMRR) phase by including their ESOH plans in the Milestone A SEP.

Proposals to control the manufacture, use, and disposal of ozone-depleting substances: hearing before the Subcommittee on Environmental Protection of the Committee on Environment and Public Works, United States Senate, One Hundred First Congress, first session, on S.S.S.S.and S.This page provides information on compounds recognized as ozone-depleting substances (ODS ODSA compound that contributes to stratospheric ozone include chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), halons, methyl bromide, carbon tetrachloride, hydrobromofluorocarbons, chlorobromomethane, and methyl chloroform.

EPA has issued a series of regulations to phase out the production and import of Class I and Class II ozone-depleting substances (ODS).The regulations include reporting and recordkeeping requirements for producers, importers, and exporters of Class I and Class II ODS.

They will remove and collect the ozone-depleting substances and will arrange for proper disposal of all components of the appliance/s. There is normally a fee for this service. Some newer appliances use alternative refrigerants such as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) – it is also illegal to release these synthetic gases into the atmosphere because.

Ozone Depleting Substances Consumption (Control) Rules, Date of Publication (March 1, ) In exercise of the power conferred by Section 24 of the Environment Protection Act,Government of Nepal has framed the following Rules: 1.

The fact that the drop in emissions coincides with an increase in make-up compared to seems to point towards improvements in emission control in the industry.

Bulk import into Australia of most of these substances (except HCFCs and methyl bromide) is banned. SAMPLE POPOSAL Chemical Engineering The following sample proposal is not intended to represent the scope and depth of the projects proposed by or assigned to students.

Methyl bromide is an ozone depleting substance and toxic to humans. The use of methyl bromide in New Zealand is only permitted for quarantine and pre-shipment purposes.

The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer is a global agreement to protect the Earth’s ozone layer by phasing out the chemicals that deplete it.

This phase-out plan includes both the production and consumption of ozone-depleting substances. The landmark agreement was signed in and entered into force in (2) The ozone depleting potential of a class 2 ozone depleting substance referred to in subsection (1) is set out in column 3 of Schedule 2 of the Ozone-Depleting Substances Regulations,SOR/, made under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, (Canada).

Reg. /10, s. 16 (2). Part V refrigerants. Interpretation. Interpretation. The Federal Halocarbon Regulations, control the use and handling of halocarbons (including ozone-depleting substances) in refrigeration, air-conditioning, fire-extinguishing and solvent systems that are located on aboriginal or federal lands, or are owned by federal departments, boards and agencies, Crown corporations or federal works and undertakings.

Exporting ozone-depleting substances Ozone-depleting substances can be exported under certain conditions and you must apply to us for a permit first. The ozone-depleting substances - CFCs, halons, carbon tetrachloride, methyl chloroform, HBFC, bromochloromethane, methyl bromide and HCFC - can only be exported from New Zealand if.

• Dispose of Halon and Halon-containing equipment by sending to a recycler and/or manufacturer operating in accordance with NFPA 10 and NFPA 12A standards, and maintain disposal records; • Implement a plan to phase-out the use of halon based fire suppression equipment.

Permit Application Forms and Reporting Forms. Under the Ozone-depleting Substances and Halocarbon Alternatives Regulations (ODSHAR), there are a number of activities involving ozone-depleting substances and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) that require a permit issued by Environment and Climate Change Canada.

Examples include recommended measures on fire-fighting, transport and recycling and disposal. Please note: Precautionary measures and guidance on safe use concern the use and handling of the specific substance as such, not of the presence of the substance in other articles or mixtures.

The precautionary measures and guidance on safe use are as. You can help control and minimize the release of ozone depleting substances into our atmosphere by properly servicing and disposing of your refrigeration and air conditioning equipment. You can also purchase new refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners that use ozone-friendly refrigerants or less harmful chemicals.

The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (“Montreal Protocol”) restricts the use of Ozone-depleting substances (ODSs) in manufacturing and Sections and of the US Internal Revenue Code (IRC) impose an excise tax on the sale or use of ODSs by the manufacturer, producer or importer of the ODS and the sale or.
