Item #d94mar114

In New Scientist, Mar. 19:

"Loophole Opens Up Black Market in CFCs...," D. MacKenzie, p. 6-7. Chemical companies warn that thousands of tons of banned compounds could be imported into Europe this year because of a loophole in the Montreal Protocol. For example, CFCs produced in Russia could be chemically doctored to look used, enabling them to be imported for "recycling."

"...As Japan Seeks Last-Minute Opt-Out from Ban," P. Hadfield, p. 6. A request for exemptions from some rules of the Montreal Protocol has been criticized by environmentalists.

Item #d94mar115

"Hydrocarbon Refrigerators: Not Just for Europe?" Global Environ. Change Rep., pp. 1-3, Mar. 25. Since Greenpeace helped an East German company develop and market a hydrocarbon refrigerator in 1992, interest has spread throughout Europe. Now U.S. federal laboratories are evaluating hydrocarbon refrigerants at industry's request.
