Safety First: Technical guide for the safe handling of hydrocarbons propellants
While most large enterprises that manufacture aerosol products have stopped using CFCs in their manufacturing lines consistent with the Montreal Protocol obligations, there is still a real need for small and medium scale aerosol companies to understand the safety considerations related to the conversion of their plants to alternative propellants. This manual provides plant managers and National Ozone Units with critical information related to the safe conversion of aerosol plants to non-CFC propellants, specifically hydrocarbons. The guide presents detailed information about safety, formula adaptations, and effective destenching methods for aerosol production using hydrocarbon aerosol propellants (HAPs).

Training Workshop on Safety Aspects of CFC Substitution, Workshop Report, Full Version with Presentation Texts, Hangzhou, China, 22-24 May 1996
The Training Workshop on Safety Aspects of CFC Substitution for China was approved at the 18th meeting of the Executive Committee of the Multilateral Fund, as a response to the urgent need for development and implementation of regulations and safety procedures, at a national and enterprise level, to ensure safe production after conversion to non-ozone depleting substance technologies. The workshop was intended to initiate the activities to address these needs.
