WEST GERMANY, NETHERLANDS BAN CFCs EARLY


Item #d90sep89

Just before the June 1990 meeting to revise the Montreal Protocol, West Germany announced intentions to ban most domestic uses and production of chlorofluorocarbons by 1995, in gradual steps starting in 1991. Shortly thereafter, the Netherlands announced a similar phase-out. West Germany and other countries pressed for a world-wide ban by 1997 at the protocol review, although the final deadline adopted was 2000 at the insistence of the United States, Japan and the Soviet Union. A number of other parties to the protocol intend to eliminate CFCs by 1997 anyway. (See Chem. Week, p. 24, June 13, 1990; New Scientist, p. 24, June 9; Intl. Environ. Rptr., p. 313, July and p. 227, June.)
