The European Commission has allocated the 2018 quotas for the import and production of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). As required by the EU regulation on fluorinated gases (Regulation 517/2014 of 16 April 2014 on fluorinated greenhouse gases, or F-Gases Regulation), the Commission has limited the sale of HFCs in the EU for 2018.
HFCs are the most common type of F-gas, and are applied in refrigeration, air-conditioning, foams and aerosols. Their warming potential is a thousand times more powerful than that of carbon dioxide (CO2). The overall HFC quota is reduced from year to year -- the 2018 quota is 63% of the 2015 quota, with quota for 2016 and 2017 at 93%. The F-Gases Regulation requires a gradual phase-down of HFCs - by 2030, sales may not exceed 21% of 2015 sales.
