Fluorinated greenhouse gases 2020
Data reported by companies on the production, import, export and destruction of fluorinated greenhouse gases in the European Union, 2007-2019. The 2020 edition of the EEA report on fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-gases) confirms the good progress achieved up to 2019 by the EU in phasing down the use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), a set of fluorinated gases with a high global warming potential (GWP) that is significantly contributing to climate change. The report evaluates and presents the data reported by companies in 2020 about their activities involving F-gases in 2019, assessing the progress on HFC phase‑down made under both EU legislation and the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol. The report also details the amount of F-gases supplied to various industrial applications.
