EU Proposes Tighter Rules to Cut Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases

November 07, 2012

The European Union’s regulator proposed today tighter rules to cut fluorinated greenhouse gases in order to put the bloc on track to reach its long-term pollution-reduction targets.

The European Commission’s proposal to revise the existing regulation on so-called F-gases aims to cut their emissions by two-thirds by 2030 from the current level. It also seeks to prohibit their use in equipment including household refrigerators to spur the development of more climate-friendly alternatives.
