Item #d95nov75

Deadly Complacency: U.S. Production, the Black Market, and Ozone Depletion, Sep. 1995, no charge. Ozone Action, 1621 Connecticut Ave. NW, Washington DC 20009 (202 265 6738).

(See News Notes,this issue--Nov. 1995.) A combination of legal production and illegal international trade of CFCs is counteracting the gains of the Montreal Protocol. Four U.S. companies are legally allowed to manufacture CFCs in the U.S. after 1995, and their production allowances can be sold or traded. However, these companies should retire their allowances. The U.S. government should give public access to information on CFC production, stockpiles, imports and exports of CFCs, data that industries must submit but are now considered confidential. Moneys from the Montreal Protocol Multilateral Fund should be withheld from countries that fail to submit data on production, consumption, imports and exports.

Item #d95nov76

The International Cooperative for Ozone Layer Protection [ICOLP], 1990-1995: A New Spirit of Industry and Government Cooperation, July 1995. ICOLP Exec. Dir., 2000 L St. NW, S. 710, Washington DC 20036 (tel: 202 737 1419; fax: 202 296 7442).

Summarizes the accomplishments of the ICOLP, a group made up of the chief executives of several multinational corporations and others who have worked to find ways to reduce the use of ozone-depleting substances. In its first five years, the group has shared research and development information with companies in developed and developing countries, and HAS achieved phaseout goals for ozone-depleting substances as many as four years ahead of the Montreal Protocol requirements. The group will take the same approach to reduce the use of environmentally harmful solvents.
