Chinese customs success with illegal refrigerants

CHINA: Reports from customs officers in the port of Ningbo suggests that Chinese authorities have had some success this year in intercepting export shipments of illegal refrigerants.
Ningbo customs recently reported the interception of illegal exports of ozone-depleting R22 and R142b. The gases, currently part of China's ODP phase-out agreements under the Montreal Protocol, require export licenses. A total of 850 cylinders of mis-declared R22 were found and 22,500 cylinders of hidden R142b.

Earlier this year, Ningbo customs officers seized five export shipments of counterfeit Honeywell Genetron R22 refrigerant. While the consignments held legal Chinese export licenses for the 3,386 bottles, the packaging carried a counterfeit Genetron brand, a fact confirmed by Honeywell.
