The European Union (EU) has achieved its goals to phase out ozone-depleting substances under the Montreal Protocol. A new European Environment Agency (EEA) report shows that in 2018 the EU again destroyed or exported more ozone-depleting substances than it produced or imported.

Union Environment Minister released the India Cooling Action Plan (ICAP) that seeks to provide an integrated approach towards cooling and related areas including reduction in the cooling demand, in order to reduce emissions.

India has become the first country in the world to develop this draft blueprint outlining action plan to bring down cooling requirement and refrigerant demands across sectors by 20 per cent to 25 per cent by 2037-38 while slashing cooling energy requirements by 25 per cent to 40 per cent within the same period. It was released by the Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan.

The Ministry of Environment is set to conduct a detailed energy efficiency market survey that will inform new policy aimed at introducing new non-pollutant cooling technologies by restricting impor

The Donald Trump-led American withdrawal from the Paris climate change negotiations in the hope of a different rhetoric is a serious step undermining what was already a weak international cooperati

Question raised in Rajya Sabha on Global Warming due to HFC-23, 05/12/2016. Hydrofluorocarbon – 23 (HFC-23) or Trifluoromethane, is a by-product produced during the manufacture of Hydrochlorofluorocarbon – 22 (HCFC – 22), a refrigerant gas. HFC-23 is one of the potent greenhouse gases, having Global Warming Potential of 14,800.

Almost everyone believes the conference beginning today will reach a deal on HFCs. That will leave only one more loophole to plug — international shipping.

Patents and other intellectual property such as know-how are a complex issue for policy makers and civil society experts, especially considering the large number of patents involved and the sensitivity and confidentiality around licensing agreements. This paper does not attempt to offer a solution to the patent debate.

India’s policy push towards widely limiting hydrofluorocarbons (HFC) release would depend significantly on funding provided by developed nations, an environment ministry official said on Tuesday.
