Résumé

This report was written by the European Environment Agency (EEA) and its European Topic Centre for Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation (ETC/ACM). It summarises the most recent data reported under the F-Gas Regulation. Companies were required to submit F-gas reports covering 2011 by 31 March 2012. In total, 120 companies submitted reports for the year 2011; the number of companies that reported data for 2011 was 12% higher than for the previous year. An increase was observed for data reported in all categories, i.e. for producers, importers and exporters. When expressed in metric tonnes, data for the reporting year 2011 show a decrease in production (5%), import (6%) and intra-EU sales (12%) of F-gases compared to the previous year. In contrast, exports increased by 5%.
Due to the large differences between the GWP values for certain F-gases, when data are expressed in CO2-equivalents however, the interpretation of certain trends differs. An increase is still observed for exported F-gases (+ 12%) but now also for production (+ 1%), while a decrease is still observed for both imports (8%) and sales (11%). This can mainly be attributed to a strong decrease in HFC sales (13% when expressed in metric tonnes, 17% when expressed in CO2-equivalents). While export levels expressed in CO2-equivalents are higher compared to the preceding years, EU sales dropped in 2011 to levels similar to those observed in the 'financial crisis' year of 2009. Imports generally increased over the period 2007–2011, while EU production appears to have stabilised at levels that are around 20% lower than those reported in 2007.
