Review of Methyl chloroform Distributed Emissions from the Global Emissions Inventory Activity (GEIA)

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: Methyl chloroform (CCl3CH3, 1,1,1-trichloroethane) was primarily used as a
solvent in a wide range of industrial and commercial processes from which
emissions occur much more promptly than from, for example, refrigeration
systems. Because most purchases were made to replace material that had already
been emitted, emissions are an effectively invariant function of sales.
