Economic Impacts of the F-gas Regulation of the European Union (2006-2007)

For the Ministry of Environment and Water Management, MAKK has carried out the economic impact assessment of the F-gas Regulation (842/2006/EC) of the European Union. HFC gases intended to replace ozone depleting gases (CFCs and HCFCs) are GHGs and are under the effect of the Kyoto Protocol, therefore measures are needed to constrain their use and emissions. We investigated the economic impacts of the Regulation in the affected sectors (e.g. cooling and air conditioning, fire extinguishing, insulation etc) as well as propose policy instruments to deal with collection and disposal/recycling.
