  • Introductions to the project and myself The workshop is taking place in the framework of this project Taking the opportunity of HCFC phase-out for selecting not only ozone- but climate-friendly alternative solutions as much as possible
  • DTIE: located in Paris – within the framework of its work on ozone and climate
  • Ultimately encourage adoption of the most environmentally-beneficial technology
  • Reduced emissions from MAC sector and Accelerated and climate-friendly HCFC phase-out 07 jumpstart project for nanjing day 1 mac

    1. 1. Jumpstart HCFC and MAC project Reduced emissions from MAC sector and Accelerated and climate-friendly HCFC phase-out Etienne GONIN, Project Coordinating Consultant UNEP DTIE OzonAction, Paris Nanjing, China, 3-4 June 2010
    2. 2. The context: ozone-climate linkages <ul><li>OzonAction work: </li></ul><ul><li>HCFC Phase-out Management Plans (HPMPs) </li></ul><ul><li>Information, education, communication campaigns & products </li></ul><ul><li>Capacity building products </li></ul><ul><li>HCFC & MAC Jumpstart Project </li></ul><ul><li>HCFC Help Centre </li></ul><ul><li>SolarChill </li></ul><ul><li>Refrigerants Naturally </li></ul>
    3. 3. The ‘Jumpstart’ project on HCFC phaseout and MAC (2009-2010) <ul><li>Partner to the project: European Commission </li></ul><ul><li>Two objectives: </li></ul><ul><li>1. Accelerate HCFC phaseout in developing countries and maximise environmental benefits </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sectors: Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, insulating foams (blowing agents) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>2. Reducing car emissions in the Mobile Air Conditioning sector </li></ul>
    4. 4. 1. HCFC accelerated phaseout <ul><li>Developing countries are currently adopting strategies for future HCFC phaseout (HPMPs) </li></ul><ul><li>Considering accelerated phaseout ahead of MP obligations can benefit: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The ozone layer </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Climate, as HCFCs are GHGs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Opportunity for: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Selecting climate-friendly HCFC replacements </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Energy efficiency gains </li></ul></ul></ul>
    5. 5. Outcomes <ul><li>Disseminate Information on latest technologies for HCFC replacements (environmental impacts, performance, conditions of availability), examples of policies, to encourage cooperation </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce the burden of 2013 freeze </li></ul>
    6. 6. Why urgency? <ul><li>The baseline period if 2009-2010 for HCFCs </li></ul><ul><li>Growth rate of HCFC use is still very important in the region </li></ul><ul><li>After 2009-2010, only two years to prepare for freeze and invert the growth rate </li></ul><ul><li>Situation is different from CFC freeze b/c of time constraints </li></ul><ul><li>a Jumpstart is needed </li></ul>
    7. 7. Means / Activities <ul><li>Information compiled on the UNEP web site, the HCFC Help Centre: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>http://www.unep.fr/OzonAction/topics/hcfc.asp </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>References to Parties’ decisions, schedules, case studies, national law exemples, documents </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project page: unep.fr/ozonaction/topics/hcfc_jumpstart.htm </li></ul></ul>
    8. 8. Means / Activities <ul><li>Two Workshops (in 2010): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Workshop on Refrigeration/AC in Colombia (April) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Workshop on foams in Rep. of Korea (May) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Case studies </li></ul><ul><li>Survey of obstacles to low-GWP technologies </li></ul><ul><li>Survey assessing potential risks related to illegal trade in HCFCs </li></ul><ul><li>Toolbox for national ozone units on HCFC phase-out </li></ul>
    9. 9. 2. Reducing MAC emissions <ul><li>Sector with very rapid adoption of air conditioning </li></ul><ul><li>High emission rates over lifetime of equipment </li></ul><ul><li>Direct transition from CFCs (CFC12) to HFCs (HFC134a) </li></ul><ul><li>Current dominant technology: HFC134a </li></ul><ul><li>On the verge of new technology revolution - for next 10 years? </li></ul>
    10. 10. Specific objectives (MAC) <ul><li>Present the technological developments and potential environmental impacts </li></ul><ul><li>Present strategic orientations of main actors </li></ul><ul><li>Share with developing countries experience for ex. from the EU (legislation prompted technology evolution) </li></ul><ul><li>Identify and help disseminate best practices (servicing, containment, end of life,…) </li></ul>
    11. 11. Expected results <ul><li>Raised awareness of available MAC technology options and regulatory approaches </li></ul><ul><li>Exchanges of lessons learnt between countries, of potential for lower direct and indirect emissions of greenhouse gases, local pollution and other potential associated economic benefits. </li></ul>
    12. 12. Why MAC, why China? <ul><li>Refrigerant consumption in the Chinese MAC sector will increase 120% between 2008 and 2018, from 10,000 tons to 22,000 tons </li></ul><ul><li>More a national level decision since a very small portion of Chinese cars are exported </li></ul><ul><li>F/up to previous workshop in Shanghai - 2008 </li></ul><ul><li>Potential fuel gains high </li></ul><ul><li>Influence of debate on next technology but also of international discussion on HFC phasedown </li></ul>
    13. 13. Deliverables <ul><li>Fact sheets on: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The global MAC legislative environment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How has the EU legislation been prepared and implemented </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Servicing and Containment – examples and best practices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Alternatives to HFC134a: what is the industry proposing </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Two policy workshops </li></ul>
