Global projection of F-gas emissions shows high increase until 2050

(German Federal Environmental Agency) Global emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-gases) will amount to 4 GT CO2 eq. by 2050 if no political mitigation measures are taken. The contribution of F-gases to global warming will increase from 1.3% (2004) to 7.9% of the projected direct CO2 emissions. In case of CO2 mitigation, the share of Fgas emissions would be significantly higher in 2050. This is the result of the German study “Projections of global emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases in 2050”.   Download PDF
