11. Fugitive emissions from industrial gases

This methodology quantifies the GHG emission reductions from activities that recover and destroy Ozone-Depleting Substances (ODS) from products where a partial or total atmospheric release of ODS occurs in the baseline scenario. Project activities can be implemented in Montreal Protocol Article 5 and Non-Article 5 countries.

Project activities may recover and destroy ODS refrigerants, ODS blowing agents or both. In the case of ODS blowing agents, the methodology is only applicable to project activities recovering and destroying ODS blowing agents contained in insulation foam of refrigerator appliances.

The methodology was revised on 30 November 2017 to account for the destruction of unused and stockpiled ODS and the use of an activity method module for the determination of additionality.
