The protocol covers over 200 individual substances with a high ozone-depleting potential, including chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), halons, carbon tetrachloride (CTC), 1,1,1-Trichloroethane (TCA), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), hydrobromofluorocarbons (HBFCs), bromochloromethane (BCM) and methyl bromide (MB), all of which are referred to as 'controlled substances'.
several halogenated CH4 analogues such as chloroform, bromochloromethane (McAllister and New bold (2008) and statins (Miller and Wolin, 2001) have been exploited in reducing the production of CH4.
