Review of CFC-11 Distributed Emissions from the Global Emissions Inventory Activity (GEIA)
Entry ID: GEIA_CFC11

Abstract: CFC-11 (CCl3F, trichlorofluoromethane) is now used primarily within rigid
plastic insulating foams ("closed cell foams"). Some material is released into
the atmosphere when the foam is first blown but most of the losses occur in the
long term due to gradual migration of the insulating gas through the cell
walls, with total loss when the equipment is finally removed from service and
scrapped. There ... View entire text
