A Guide to Information on Greenhouse Gases and Ozone Depletion
Published July 1988 through June 1999



Item #d90sep90

House and Senate conferees reached agreement August 3, 1990, on provisions for phasing out ozone-depleting chemicals in pending revisions to the U.S. Clean Air Act. Most provisions are similar to those of the Montreal Protocol, specifying elimination of production of CFCs, halons and carbon tetrachloride by the year 2000, and methyl chloroform by 2002. HCFC production would be frozen by 2015 and banned by 2030. (See previous entry.) Ozone depletion was the first and one of the easiest topics up for negotiation in the House and Senate bills; the new Clean Air Act could be signed into law this year if other, more thorny issues are resolved. See Environ. Rptr. Current Devel., pp. 755-756, Aug. 10, 1990.
