Allemagne : l'utilisation des gaz fluorés à effet de serre de nouveau en baisse en 2013 (en anglais)
Sur la base des données du gouvernement allemand, la consommation de HCFC, HFC et SF6 a diminué de 7% en Allemagne en 2013.
The use of fluorinated greenhouse gas in enterprises and local units in Germany continued to decline in 2013, as it had done in 2012. The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) reports that 9,145 tonnes of fluorocarbons were used: 700 tonnes or 7% less than in 2012.
While the greatest demand was for use as refrigerants, it was this area that showed the largest fall, dropping by 9% from 7,562 tonnes in 2012 to 6,897 in 2013.
The climate impact of fluorocarbons used in 2013 amounted to a total of approximately 17 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent, with R134a accounting for just under 8.9 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent. R404A use corresponded to another 3.9 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent.
