Results of ozone layer preservation project to be presented today

HAVANA, Cuba, Nov 25 (ACN) Cuban professionals will present today in Havana their experiences in the implementation of a project to eliminate the production of rigid polyurethane foams, ozone-depleting substances.

The experts will take part in a workshop focused on the evaluation of technologies to replace the gases known as hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) with the use of techniques and elements with low global warming potential, an initiative launched seven years ago as part of the National Plan for the Elimination of HCFCs in the rigid foam sector, as reported to ACN by the Ozone Technical Office (OTOZ).

OTOZ director Nelson Espinosa Pena will deliver the opening speech of the meeting, whereas engineer Reynaldo Alemán Záldivar will provide details of the project in question, which was also applied to refrigeration, drug packaging and other fields. Further works will address the production of continuous and discontinuous panels, including one dedicated to the Kigali Amendment, committed to the protection of the Ozone Layer and to which Cuba offered unconditional support.

Kigali is the capital of Rwanda, an East African nation where the amendment entered into force on January 1, 2019.

OTOZ is in charge of this and other efforts, together with the Center for Information Management and Energy Development, attached to the Agency for Nuclear Energy and Advanced Technologies of the Ministry of Science, Technology and the Environment.
