These Fact Sheets provide background material for the UNEP Workshop on HFC Management: Technical Issues. The Fact Sheets provide delegates with an overview of available factual information and have been structured to support the workshop agenda. Fact Sheet 2 provides an analysis of the current market sectors using HFCs. It highlights the HFC demand in key market sectors and introduces opportunities to use lower GWP alternatives. Fact Sheets 3 to 14 address the main end use sectors. Each uses a standard template to highlight the issues in each sector. The market sectors are split into sub-sectors – these are important as the technical issues vary considerably across these sub-sectors. Fact Sheet 15 provides a glossary of terms and definitions used in other Fact Sheets.
