China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

China plans to completely elim­i­nate the use of HCFCs in polyurethanes by the end of 2025, ac­cord­ing to the For­eign Eco­nomic Co­op­er­a­tion Of­fice of the Min­istry of En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion. The sub­stance, com­posed of hy­dro­gen, chlo­rine, flu­o­rine and car­bon, is used in re­frig­er­ants and foam­ing agents and poses a threat to the Earth’s ozone layer.
