Mexico Halocarbon Protocol

The Mexico Halocarbon Protocol provides guidance to quantify, report, and verify GHG emission reductions associated with the destruction of halocarbons sourced from Mexico and destroyed at facilities in Mexico. Eligible refrigerants include Chlorofluorcarbon-11 (CFC-11), CFC-12, CFC-113, CFC-114, Hydrochlorofluorocarbon-22 (HCFC-22), Hydrofluorocarbon-32 (HFC-32), HFC-125, HFC-134a, and HFC-143a. Eligible HCFC and HFC sources include stockpiles recovered before protocol adoption, refrigerant recovered from end-of-life equipment or retrofitted equipment, and leftover virgin refrigerant from recharge cylinders. The draft protocol was adopted by the Reserve Board of Directors in June 2021.

Protocol Development

The protocol development process for Mexico Halocarbon Protocol involved a multi-stakeholder workgroup, public comment period, and responses to public comments. For more information, please visit:
