The importance of mobile air conditioning to climate protection.

L'importance du conditionnement d'air mobile pour la protection du climat.

Auteurs : ANDERSEN S. O.

Résumé

Mobile air conditioners (MACs) result in direct emissions of fluorinated gas (HFC-134a in most systems after 1994) and indirect emissions of carbon dioxide greenhouse gas from increased fuel use. Both fluorinated gases and carbon dioxide are greenhouse gases controlled by the Kyoto Protocol. MACs are already considered standard equipment on vehicles sold in Japan and North America. They are now penetrating the vehicle fleet in Europe very rapidly. The purpose of the conference was to identify policy relevant options on how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions due to MACs and to make recommendations to regulators and vehicle manufacturers in the EU and elsewhere. Topics: environmental challenge of MACs; response to greenhouse gas emissions from MACs; industry perspective on reducing direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions from MACs; conclusions: the way forward. The 15 papers of this conference, organised by the European Commission together with the US Environment Protection Agency, held in Brussels, Belgium on 10-11 February 2003, can be downloaded from the Web site: europa.eu.int/comm/environment/air/mac2003.
