Success story: Phase-out of HCFC-141b

Between July 2011 and 2014, Walton phased out the use of HCFC-141b in its manufacturing of insulation foam for domestic refrigerators, resulting in savings of 183.7 MT of HCFC-141b in Bangladesh.

At the 62nd Meeting of the Executive Committee of the Montreal Protocol, the Multilateral Fund approved Walton’s project to convert its HCFC-141b foam production line to the environmentally-friendly cyclopentane technology. The projected was funded by the United Nations Development Program.
