  HCFC, Freon, halon are ozone layer depleting substances which can cause damage to ozone layer. In industrial production, these substances are mainly applied in refrigerant and foaming agent. Refrigeration equipment, especially household air conditioning, is the main user of these substances.

  It is reported that Chinese household air conditioning industry will use R290 as main alternative refrigerant, and transformation of 18 R290 air conditioning production lines will be completed before 2015 to gradually reduce the use of HCFC.
