This project is about defining the Government commitment and plan to meet the obligations that it has assumed as a Party to the Montreal Protocol (MP) under Decision XIX/6  of the Nineteenth Meeting of the Parties that accelerated the phase out of hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) in both Article 5 and non-Article 5 countries.


The Overall goals of this project are :

To strengthen national capacity to phase-out Angola consumption of HCFC’s. Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) that are used as refrigerants and foam-blowing agents will be replaced with Hydrofluorocabons (HFCs). It is expected that Stage 1 result in the phase out of 10% of its agreed baseline HCFC consumption, equivalent to 29 ODS tonnes (or 1.59 ODP tonnes). 

What have we accomplished so far ?

The project has held awareness campaigns on the phasing-out programme of HCFCs that includes training of technicians in new technologies of refrigeration and air conditioning, identification of HCFCs and workshops on preservation of ozone layer. Customs, Trade and Police are amongst the key beneficiaries. The recent acquisition of refrigerant recovery equipment and refrigeration maintenance tools kits for centers will equip and reinforce national capacity in the target provinces. In the framework of the Presidential Decree Nr. 153/11 of 15 June, preparations for the establishment of a Quota System has initiated. The increase of import duty in place, is contributing to the goal of 10% reduction in HCFCs consumption.
