Social Cost of Technical Control Options to Reduce Emissions of Potential ozone depleters in the United States: An Update
Dec 31, 1985
Global human emissions of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and several related chemicals may reduce the concentration of stratospheric ozone and, in so doing, may induce significant negative effects on human health and a variety of economically important activities. For the United States and the world as a whole, this report describes current patterns of use and projects future production levels for the seven most important potential ozone depleters: CFC-11, CFC-12, CFC-113, carbon tetrachloride, methyl chloroform, Halon 1211, and Halon 1301. The projections are based on detailed analysis of the major applications of these chemicals.
