Systemes LMP


In 1987, the United Nations ratified the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer as an effort to reduce the production and use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs). The protocol establishes a timeline to gradually phase out CFCs except for very limited uses, and sets a date for the reducing the consumption and production of HCFCs.

At the time of the protocol’s ratification, the timeline for both actions seemed very distant. Now that 28 years have passed, those dates are closer at hand and in the case of the 2015 date set for the reduction of HCFCs, already here.
