On Saturday, delegates to the Open-Ended Working Group to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (OEWG 40) finalized discussions on data reporting, unexpected emissions of trichlorofluoromethane (CFC-11), Technology and Economic Assessment Panel (TEAP) senior expert nominations, energy efficiency, and adjustments to the Protocol.
OEWG 40 concluded all its agenda items until the thirtieth Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substance that Deplete the Ozone Layer (MOP 30) and received submissions of three conference room papers (CRPs) that will be forwarded for consideration by MOP 30 convening in November in Quito, Ecuador. These relate to: unexpected emissions of CFC-11; access of Article 5 parties to energy-efficient technologies in the refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat-pump sectors; and addressing the composition and balance of the assessment panels.
Other highlights of the day included:
China reported on its immediate actions following reports of unexpected CFC-11 emissions from the East Asia region, including onsite inspections, sample collections, testing, and investigations of leads provided by the Environmental Investigation Agency.
OEWG 40 delegates highlighted discussions and suggestions on possible actions to be taken on CFC-11 prior to MOP 30, including by the Secretariat, the Scientific Assessment Panel and TEAP, parties, and institutions.
After adopting the report of the meeting and hearing closing statements, OEWG 40 closed at 10:40 pm.
