Chile HFC Inventory


In order to ascertain Chile's hydrochluorocarbon (HFC) consumption the Ministry of Environment of Chile and the United Nations Development Program, at the request of the CCAC, commisioned this survey. The object was to obtain a detailed profile of the HFC market, and more specifically, to define current consumption by substance and sector; define growth patterns (also by substance and sector); and identify low GWP 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.
