No agreement on HFC "phase-down"

WHILE support for the initiative grows, plans to curb the use of HFC refrigerants were again baulked at the latest Montreal Protocol meeting in Bali last week.
The number of countries backing a 'phase-down' in the use of high-GWP HFCs has grown to 108 countries (up from 91 last year) out of the 197 signatories but failed to be passed because China and India objected.

Meanwhile, reports suggest that Canada, one of the first to sign up to the Kyoto Protocol in 1998, may be about to pull out.
