Biden Administration Continues Phasedown of Super-Pollutants to Combat Climate Change and Boost U.S. Manufacturing
WASHINGTON (Oct. 20, 2022) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced additional actions to phase down climate-damaging hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), a crucial component of President Biden's ambitious agenda to combat the climate crisis while advancing American manufacturing and innovation. EPA today issued a proposed rule to implement the next step of the nation's HFC phasedown, an ambitious 40% reduction below historic levels starting in 2024. The proposal follows the Senate's bipartisan approval to ratify the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, a global agreement to phase down HFCs and avoid up to 0.5?C of global warming by the end of this century.
