HCFC Phase out Management Plan (HPMP) Stage-1 for Compliance with the 2013 and 2015 control targets for Annex-C, Group-1 substances in Lebanon
Lebanon’s HCFC Phase-out Management Plan (HPMP Stage-I) comprises of a combination of interventions such as technology transfer investments, policies and regulations, technical assistance, training, awareness and communications and management, coordination and monitoring in the Foams and Air Conditioning/Refrigeration sectors, to be implemented over six years from 2011 to 2017.
Upon successful completion, the plan will result in net sustainable reductions of minimum 20.03 ODP tonnes in the national HCFC consumption by 2015, contributing to Lebanon’s compliance with the 2013 and 2015 control targets for HCFCs. In addition, the project will result in net CO2-equivalent emission reductions of about 0.66 million tonnes annually from 2015.
