The United States, Canada, and Mexico have submitted a proposed amendment to the Montreal Protocol, seeking to implement a global freeze and phasedown of HFC production and consumption.

This is the fifth year that the amendment was submitted, but in past years has failed to gain the necessary traction for adoption.

The most recent version of the amendment contains changes, according to the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI). More recent data for establishment of the baseline was included. HFOs were removed from the proposal. The new version also reduces the steps for developed countries to reach phasedown.

AHRI said the amendment will be considered at the meeting of the Open-Ended Working Group of the Montreal Protocol, which starts June 24, 2013, in Bangkok, as well as at the Meeting of the Parties, in October 2013.
