Survey of selected fluorinated greenhouse gases.

Author(s) : HANSEN E., PEDERSEN P. H., CHRISTENSEN F. M., et al.

Type of monograph: Report


This survey covers 14 HFC-substances plus 7 PFC-substances besides sulphur hexafluoride (see Table 0). All substances are identified by the European Fluorocarbon Technical Committee (EF-CTC) as major fluorinated greenhouse gases. Within the groups of HFCs are included 2 substances also named as HFOs (HFOs designates hydrofluoroolefins). HFOs differ from other HFCs in having a double bond between a pair of carbon atoms making the substances more exposed to atmospheric decomposition.
The survey is focused on pure substances. Several HFC-products are marketed, however, which are not single substances, but mixtures of substances designed to replace specific substances for certain applications.
