Recommendations
1

Extend the expiration date of the project for five (5) years in accordance with the proposed work schedule presented and approved by the Executive Committee of the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol at its 79th Meeting, held in July of 2017, in order to allow the activities in the execution and planning stages, including the effective destruction of the 100 tons of identified ODS1 residues, to be carried out.

2

Support the CRAs3 to improve their laboratories. This improvement is necessary so that laboratories can adequately verify the degree of purity of fluids that have undergone regeneration processes. This is the only way for laboratories to certify regenerated fluids.

3

 

Include in the training programs to be carried out within the scope of the Project emphasis on adequate handling, in terms of storage, transfer, transport and destruction of ODS.

 

4

Review procedures and standards to include issues about data and information on ODS Waste Management, under development and to be developed in synergy with national programs on energy efficiency and sustainable management of solid waste and electrical and electronic equipment waste, as determined by the Project Document.

5

Conduct, in a participatory manner, the revision of existing national technical standards and others to be created in accordance with international parameters that require viewing and revision simultaneously with the preparatory activities already explained in this document. Industrial and professional associations and related institutions play an important role in this regard.

6

Encourage discussions on specific issues raised during the execution of the activities of Project BRA/14/G72, based on workshops or meetings with the support of industrial associations and environmental agencies

7

Carry out awareness-raising and training activities when possible. Although diffusion of technology occurs relatively quickly, changes in awareness and behaviour of technicians in their work routines may take years.

1. Recommendation:

Currently, a bidding processes are being carried out in order to purchase:

  1. cylinders that will increase the ODS storage capacity of CRAs;
  2. laboratory equipment and materials to improve the analytical capacity of regenerated ODS.

The next stage after finished the purchase process will be the training with CRAs’ technicians.

Service contracts were signed with the four (4) CRAs whose are currently responsible for the storage of the ODS that will be sent to the destruction.

Management Response: [Added: 2017/11/03]

Besides the training and technical material to the dissemination of information under the Project framework, a specific module about  collection, storage, analysis, traceability, certified destruction applicable to integrated management of ODS will be included in the technical material to be prepared for the training of refrigeration technicians as strategy to disseminate the information about integrated management of ODS. This training will take place under the PBH4  and will be executed by GIZ5.

Management Response: [Added: 2017/11/03]

The Project has limited resources. In this sense, even with the support of Industrial Associations and environmental institutions, carry out workshops and meeting specifically with this focus. It is important take note the team’s Project has participate in trainings, workshops, meetings and national symposiums and congress promoted by industrial associations of the refrigeration sector and polyurethane foam sector (main user of ODS), specially ABRAVA7, SENAI8, and FEIPUR/FEIPLAR9 with a view to promoting and encourage discussions on the integrated management of ODS. Furthermore, the technical and awareness material produced under Project are quite broadly disseminated in this events, as well on the website: www.protocolodemontreal.org.br.
