Mexico Ozone Depleting Substances Protocol

The Mexico Ozone Depleting Substances Protocol provides guidance to quantify, report, and verify GHG emission reductions associated with the destruction of ozone depleting substances (ODS) sourced from Mexico and destroyed at facilities in Mexico. The protocol was adopted by the Reserve Board in April 2015.

Protocol Revisions

The Mexico ODS Protocol underwent a public scoping process to evaluate the feasibility of adding new eligible refrigerants for CRT issuance from destruction. The refrigerants assessed were HCFC-22, HFC-134a, HFC-125, HFC-32, and HFC-143a.

The scoping paper for the assessment of potentially eligible ODS is available for review below:

The Reserve hosted a public scoping webinar on December 6, 2019 to discuss the potential update with interested stakeholders.
