Four enterprises have signed an agreement for promising to weed out HCFC

R22 is the biggest and most widely applied refrigerating fluid in China. But due to its high GWP, it greatly affects the environment. Many countries in the world have been weeding out R22 and applied other substitutes.
In 1991, China signed an agreement of the Montreal Protocol and promised to weed out HCFCs in the domestic production. According to the regulation, China will decrease its HCFCs production and consumption to the average level of 2009's and 2010's. Up to 2015, China will reduce by 10% of HCFCs and 35% until 2020. In 2030, HCFCs will be completely eliminated except for a little volume (about 2.5%) of HCFCs that are used for refrigerating maintenance.

On Dec. 12, 2012, after the signing ceremony was finished by the Foreign Economic Cooperation Office, Ministry Environmental Protection of People's Republic of China, the domestic refrigerating fluid industry begins to weed out HCFCs.
In this reformation, enterprises have signed and will sign the contracts in three batches separately (enterprises of the first batch have signed). The first batch includes Gree Electric Appliances, Inc. of Zhuhai, Zhejiang DunAn Environmental Co., Ltd., Nanjing TICA Air-conditioning Co., Ltd. and Zhejiang Commercial Machinery Factory. These four enterprises can gain USD18.05 million in total from the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol and they promised to weed out 3,064 tonnes of HCFC-22 (R22) in total before Dec. 2015.
