Angola plans to eliminate refrigerant gases by 2030

Luanda, Sep 17 (Prensa Latina) Angola plans to eliminate, by 2030, the use of refrigerant gases belonging to hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), according to sources from the Ministry of Environment.

Since 2012 the country began to apply the schedule for the gradual elimination of these gases, which are harmful to the ozone layer and cause global warming, in compliance with the Montreal Protocol, Ivone Pascoal, the person in charge of the issue in the aforementioned ministry, explained to the Angolan Press Agency.

It is expected that the application of the measure of not importing these gases and their exclusion from consumption will be completed by 2025, leaving a margin until 2030 for their total disappearance.

Reaching this point, required intense awareness-raising work on good refrigeration practices, the introduction of new techniques, and the implementation of rules on the export, re-export and import of ozone-depleting substances and equipment, among other actions.

However, the challenge remains, as the country sets out to reduce the consumption of substances that contribute to global warming until 2050, in compliance with the Kigali Amendment, an agreement that provides for a phased reduction in the consumption of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) until that year.
