An evaluation of technical options available to reduce emissions from nonaerosol uses of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). This study examines about 100 methods of reducing emissions in a wide variety of product areas. The methods involve chemical substitutes for CFC, product substitutes for CFC-using products, work practices, and chemical control technologies. The emissions reducing potential of each option is estimated, and the cost and difficulty of implementing each option are discussed. Nine options appear to be amenable to implementation without serious nationwide economic repercussions and could reduce emissions by about one-third.
