HFC deal signed – Channel 4 News – 15 Oct 16




Tom Burke: What we are seeing (with HFCs) is exactly what happened with CFCs with the ozone hole, which is when the big countries got in and developed the alternatives, and began to develop them in large quantities, that drove the price down, and made it easier for the developing countries to join in. I think that we are going to see exactly the same thing happen again here.
