UN to rule on controversial HFC-23 projects

The UN's CDM board may this week give the go-ahead to a revision of the crediting methodology for disputed HFC-23 emission reduction projects. These projects are an important source of carbon credits to offset emissions in the EU.

The board is expected to take a decision, based on the results of an investigation it launched in August. A UN methodologies panel presented further advice on the issue on 16 November. Other issues to be discussed by the CDM board include whether to continue temporary crediting suspensions for existing HFC-23 projects.
