Colombia HFC inventory

The object of this survey was to obtain a detailed profile of the HFC market in Colombia, and more specifically, to define current consumption by substance and sector; define growth patterns (also by substance and sector); and identify low global warming potential alternatives in the different applications.

The survey was conducted using a top-down methodology to assess information from national and sectoral sources (mainly HFC importers) and validate an analysis and forecast of the country market for these substances.



As part of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition’s initiative on the promotion of hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) alternative technologies and standards, Coalition partners approved funding to develop an initial set of HFC inventories medium and large volume consuming developing countries, including Bangladesh, Chile, Colombia, Ghana, Indonesia and Nigeria. Emissions assessments were also done based on the first six HFC Inventory Reports.
