Project with ID “CAR826”  is the first registered project destroying the ODS sourced from end-of-life appliances from so called Article 5 Country.

Project has generated 89,834 tons of CO2 equivalents by destroying 12.583 ton of refrigerant gases recovered from old refrigerators in Mexico. Major compound of the gas mixture is CFC-12 which is, besides the ozone depleting potential, an extremely potent greenhouse gas – its Global Warming Potential (GWP) is 10,900 times higher than GWP of CO2.

The project is developed in cooperation with Oeko Service Luxembourg and a Mexican company operating an de-manufacturing plant for end-of-life electrical appliances.
