Hydrofluorocarbons (HFC's), used as refrigerants and in other applications, are potent greenhouse gases with a global warming potential (GWP up to 1000 times greater than carbon dioxide). Hydrofluoroolefins (HFO's) are an alternative to HFC's and have zero ozone depleting potential and a low GWP. The study will look at HFO's and their degradation products, summarise chemical processes related to atmospheric fate, assess degradation products most likely to be formed as well as impurities that can contribute to pollutant emissions.

RPA were commissioned by EEA to provide the HBM4EU project partners with policy briefs on the substances and substance groups. These were designed to inform HBM4EU researchers of the EU legislative status of substances/groups and provide information and links to further information. This was to enable researchers to tailor their research activities to address current policy questions and target the communication and dissemination of their results to the relevant EU policy makers.

Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) came into force on 1 June 2007. REACH aims to provide a high level of protection of human health and the environment, while at the same time enhancing the competitiveness and innovative capability of the EU industry. Article 138 of REACH requires the Commission to undertake reviews of the requirements for substances manufactured or imported in quantities of 1-10 tonnes per year per manufacturer/importer and, on the basis of these reviews, present any legislative proposals to modify the requirements as required.
