China, from Technology to Ozone Depletion
China is leading and urging the country to develop,control and use Technology and Artificial Intelligence. It is one of the leading market in the field of new inventions and technology. But this scenario is also give a second thought to environmental protection.
According to current reports from Scientists, there has been rise in the emission of illegal greenhouse gases that results in depletion of earth’s ozone layer and China is responsible for “a substantial fraction” of that increase.
The research published recently, found that China accounted for 40% to 60% of the global increase in trichlorofluoromethane, or CFC-11, emissions between 2014 and 2017. Emissions of the gas came primarily from the Chinese northeastern provinces of Shandong and Hebei, according to the study.
Key Points :
- A study by scientists from the University of Bristol, Kyungpook National University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology finds China responsible for much of a recent spike in the emission of an illegal greenhouse gas.
- China accounted for 40% to 60% of the global increase in trichlorofluoromethane, or CFC-11, emissions between 2014 and 2017, the study says.
- CFC-11 was internationally banned under the Montreal Protocol because it can destroy earth’s protective ozone layer.
Last year, a report by Times of India found that Chinese factories had ignored the global ban on CFC-11 under the Montreal Protocol. They had continued to make and use the chemical because it’s a cheaper material to produce foam insulation for refrigerators and buildings,that results in destroy of ozone layer and is the important topic to be discuss and to take care.
