The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and market development company shecco have published a joint report providing assistance to developing countries in the transition away from ozone-depleting substances to natural refrigerants and foam-blowing agents. The “GUIDE UNIDO – Natural Solutions for Developing Countries” presents results from the ATMOsphere Technology Summit, findings from two global surveys, and 50+ case studies from developing countries.&n
As one of the implementing agencies of the Montreal Protocol, UNIDO has always been committed to promoting sustainable solutions for companies in the refrigeration, air conditioning and foam sectors that are transitioning away from ozone depleting substances. Natural refrigerants and foam blowing agents with low global warming potential are of paramount importance in this transition,” explains Sidi Menad Si Ahmed, Director of the Montreal Protocol Branch of UNIDO, the motivation for launching the GUIDE UNIDO.
The GUIDE is a concrete tool to draw attention to the existing barriers but most importantly the success stories and innovative solutions developed in and for developing countries for advancing the use of natural refrigerants and foam-blowing agents. We hope that the survey results and case studies can serve as a reference for industry, legislators and end-users in need of verifiable information about best-practice initiatives to lead the transition away from ozone-depleting and high-global warming substances,” says Nina Masson, lead author and Head of Market Research shecco.
