Decision XV/10: Handling and destruction of foams containing ozone-depleting substances at the end of their life

The Fifteenth Meeting of the Parties decided in Dec. XV/10 to request the Technology and Economic Assessment Panel, in its April 2005 report:

  1. To provide updated useful information on the handling and destruction of ozone-depleting substance-containing thermal insulation foams including thermal foams situated in buildings, with particular attention to the economic and technological implications;
  2. To clarify the distinction between the destruction efficiency achievable for ozone-depleting substances recovered from foams prior to destruction (reconcentrated) and the destruction efficiency achievable for the foams themselves containing ozone-depleting substances (dilute source).
