Unitor Offers Shipowners CFC 'Phase-Out7 Concept

Anticipating worldwide concern about chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) emissions and the depletion of the ozone layer, Norway's international ship supply specialist Unitor AS has prepared a "Phase-Out" concept to help shipowners switch to more environmentally friendly refrigerants such as: hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC), hydrofluorocarbon (HFC), ammonia and propane.

Because of recent environmental protection decisions taken by the U.S. and European Community, shipowners are aware that a worldwide ban on CFC emissions is imminent.

The implications of the Montreal Protocol, an international agreement to end all ozone-threatening chemical production within 10 years, are: minimized refrigerant emissions; mandatory annual preventive inspections; CFCs unavailable from 1995; price and tax increase on refrigerants; mandatory recovery units; service and installation legislation; improved crew training; and the logging of refrigerant consumption.

Unitor's "Phase-out" concept provides everything an owner needs to operate his vessels in compliance with international regulations, from safe gases and reclaiming to service and control. For more information about Unitor's CFC refrigerant "Phase-Out" concept, Circle 17 on Reader Service Card
