Session-VII: Aerosols, Fire-extinguishing and Solvents Sectors

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Presentations on current and emerging low-GWP, safe and cost-effective alternatives for replacing HCFC use in the aerosols, fire-extinguishing and solvents sectors. Although small in size in terms of usage baselines, HCFC use in these sectors is highly emissive, so these sectors need to be targeted. Where viable alternatives are available, transition could be achieved in the near term.
