Pakistan Achievements

 

  • Under the Halon Management Plan, Halons Banking & Recycling facility has been established at the premises of M/s Haseen Habib Corporation, Lahore.
  • Converted 21 CFC-based projects into ozone friendly technology in foam and refrigeration sector at the cluster places of Karachi, Hyderabad, Okara, Lahore, Islamabad and Peshawar through the World Bank. (till 2008)
  • Converted 36 CTC-based projects into ozone friendly technology in the metal cleaning and solvent sector (cutlery/surgical industry) at Lahore, Gujranwala, Wazirabad, Sialkot through UNIDO. (till 2008)
  • Trained 350 Custom officials through the Directorate General of Training and Research (Customs) in collaboration with UNIDO to enhance their capacity to curb illegal trade of ODS.
  • Completed training of 3000 refrigeration servicing technicians through three renowned institutions namely National Institute of Scientific and Technical Education (NISTE) Islamabad, Technical and Vocational Training Authority (TEVTA) Lahore and Sindh Board of Technical Education (SBTE) Karachi. UNIDO implemented both these projects under Refrigeration Management Plan (RMP).
  • Complete the conduction of country-wide data collection survey in coordination with UNEP to identify the Hydro-chlorofluorocarbons (HCFC) based industry vis-à-vis volume of HCFC being consumed in refrigeration/foam industry throughout the country for preparation of HCFC accelerated Phase out Management Plan (HPMP) for the conversion of HCFC industry into Hydro-fluorocarbons (HFC) as per following phase out schedule under the provisions of the Montreal Protocol.
  • Pakistan was elected as Vice President of the Bureau of the Executive Committee of the Montreal Protocol for the year 2006 held in October 2006 at New Delhi, India.
  • Ozone Cell in collaboration with Ministry of Commerce imposed ban on import of CTC in May 2007, to ensure Pakistan’s compliance.
  • Ozone Secretariat awarded “Certificate of Recognition” to Pakistan in 2007 as a token of its remarkable contribution towards global efforts for the preservation of ozone layer.
  • At Twentieth Meeting of Parties to the Montreal Protocol (MOP-20), held at Doha, Qatar, Pakistan was elected as Co-Chair of the Open Ended Working Group (OEWG) for the year 2009 to represent the developing countries. This was for the first time that Pakistan was elected for such a prestigious position sign joining the Montreal Protocol in 1992. Accordingly, Pakistan performed as Co-Chair at 29th OEWG held at Geneva in July 2009 and 21st Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol held in November 2009 at Port Ghalib, Egypt, which was attended by the delegates from 196 member countries (including Pakistan) to the Montreal Protocol.
  • Pakistan has been elected as Vice President of the Bureau of the Executive Committee of the Montreal Protocol for the year 2010 at the 21st Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol, held in November 2009 at Port Ghalib, Egypt. Pakistan secured this prestigious position for the second time. Previously, Pakistan was elected for this position at 18th Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol held in October 2006 at New Delhi, India.
  • Launched HCFC phase out Management Plan for Pakistan on 8th March, 2011 by which Pakistan will be able to phase out the use of HCFC in foam, refrigeration and Air Conditioning sector. HCFC is a second generation of Ozone Depleting Substance (ODS) which although has low Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP), yet it possesses high Global Warming Potential (GWP). Keeping in view this phenomenon, the member countries to the Montreal Protocol have to freeze its consumption in 2013 at the average of 2009-2010 and then gradually eliminate its consumption from 2015 to 2030. Report of the HPMP launch event was prepared and published.
  • More than 200 refrigerant technicians trained under HPMP non-investment portion.(i.e 2012-13) in collaboration with STEVTA.
  • More than 100 custom officers trained under HPMP non investment portion (i.e 2012-13) in collaboration with DGTR.
