Mexico Ozone Depleting Substances Project Protocol


The Mexico Ozone Depleting Substances Project 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 Project Protocol is undergoing a public scoping process to evaluate the feasibility of adding new eligible refrigerants for CRT issuance from destruction. The refrigerants that will be assessed are HCFC-22, HFC-134a, HFC-125, HFC-32, and HFC-143a.

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

The Reserve is hosting a public scoping webinar to discuss the potential update with interested stakeholders. See meeting details and registration below.
