Implementation of the RMP: train the trainers programme in the refrigeration servicing sector

Train the trainers programme for refrigeration technicians in good management practices, aimed at improving service practices to prevent release of CFCs into the atmosphere and thus making it possible for refrigeration equipment to operate to the end of their useful life. There are about 175 workshops servicing refrigeration equipment. The amount of CFC used for servicing refrigeration equipment is remarkably high: 67.2 tonnes of CFCs every year to service 59,321 domestic refrigerators, 11.44 tonnes of CFCs to service 11,910 MAC units and 1.3 tonnes of CFC-12 to service 20 small cold rooms (average charge of 3 to 5 kg of CFCs). Individual plant leakage rates varied from 5 to 30 times the amount of refrigerant charged in the equipment.
