A family of compounds of chlorine, fluorine, and carbon, entirely of industrial origin.
That is why the planet was able to get together back in 1987 and sign he Montréal Protocol to agree to cut production in half. s are chemicals that destroy the ozone layer. In 1996 the Copenhagen agreement instituted a complete ban.
N2O concentrations continue to rise while those of CFC-12, the third largest WMGHG contributor to RF for several decades, are decreasing due to phase-out of emissions of this chemical under the Montreal Protocol.
ChloroFluroCarbons ('s) A common industrial product, used in refrigeration systems, air conditioners, aerosols, solvents and in the production of some types of packaging.
Greenhouse gases include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, chlorofluorocarbons (CFC's) and water vapour. Carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide have significant natural and human sources while only industries produce CFC's.
An example is -12 (CCl2F2, used as a refrigerant in refrigerators and air conditioners and as a foam blowing agent.
The reference level of 1 is the potential of CFC-11 and CFC-12 to cause ozone depletion. If a product has an ozone depletion potential of 0.
The ratio of the warming caused by a substance to the warming caused by a similar mass of carbon dioxide. -12, for example, has a GWP of 8,500, while water has a GWP of zero. (See> Class I Substance and Class II Substance.)

Global Warming Potential: The ratio of the warming caused by a substance to the warming caused by a similar mass of carbon dioxide. CFC-12, for example, has a GWP of 8,500, while water has a GWP of zero.
Ozone Depletion Potential is a measure of the relative potency of different chemicals in terms of ozone destruction. ODPs are generally measured relative to the refrigerant gas, -11, which is defined to have an ODP of 1.0.
The integrated change in total ozone per unit mass emission of a specific compound, relative to the integrated change in the total ozone per unit mass of CFC-11.
