HPMP Nigeria

The HPMP for Nigeria, approved at the 62nd meeting of the ExCom, is expected to result in the complete phase- out of 407.7 ODP tonnes of HCFCs in the Country by 1st January 2040. While UNDP is the Lead Implementing Agency, UNIDO is the Cooperating Agency for the HPMP Project. The first control measure was the freeze on consumption of HCFCs from January 1 2013, using the average of 2009 and 2010 as the baseline level. The next control step was the reduction of 10% from the baseline levels by Jan 1 2015.

Nigeria is conscious of the need to reap full an added environmental benefits from its ODS Phase Out efforts, as a result of which the country has committed itself to adopting technologies that will yield climate Co-Benefits. Its HCFC Phase-out Strategies therefore include replacements with Methyl Formate (MF) and Hydrocarbons (HC). This phase out route is assisting the Country to drive innovation in the direction of setting up a System House and Implementation of an Hydrocarbon (HC) Plant Production Pilot Project.
 

 

Foam Sector CFC Phase Out Activities
Foam Sector CFC Phase Out Activities
The objective of the foam sector component of the NPP was to phase out the remaining use of CFCs in the sector through a combination of “non-investment” as well as “investment” activities. As set out in the Project Document, the approximately 120 potential beneficiary enterprises were to be addressed through a series of projects, grouped according to foam category and regional segmentation
Refrigeration Sector CFC Phase Out Activities
Refrigeration Sector CFC Phase Out Activities
On the basis of the Terminal Phase-out Management Plan (TPMP) prepared and approved by the ExCom in 2002, eleven (11) enterprises in the refrigeration manufacturing sub-sector got funding from the MLF to convert from CFC-12 to HFC -134a as refrigerant and from CFC-11 to 141b as foam blowing agent.
