They recently had a meeting with China, where the sides agreed on collective actions to reduce hydrofluorcarbon (HFC) emissions, which is also potent greenhouse gas.
Thirty-six compositions conforming to the general formula of 2% polymer, 0.5% surfactant, 6% HC propellant, 0-3% hydrofluorcarbon 152A and 88.5-91.5% water that were well-balanced throughout the experimental space described were prepared.
This group of pollutants includes black carbon, methane, and some hydrofluorcarbons. They are called SLCPs because they remain in the atmosphere for shorter periods of time than carbon.
Schilling's award-winning presentation examined the use of low-Global Warming Potential (GWP) blowing agents as an alternative to hydrofluorcarbons (HFCs) in rigid polyurethane foams.
Perfluorocarbons and hydrofluorcarbons provide an interesting example of a way to implement a tax when it is costly to measure emissions directly.
(hydrofluorcarbons and perfluorocarbons--HFCs and PFCs) are also potent
Refrigerants used on ships (hydrofluorcarbons and perfluorocarbons--HFCs and PFCs) are also potent greenhouse gases when released to the atmosphere.
