Abstract: Scientists understanding of the interactions between ozone and the chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) refrigerants in the stratosphere have continued to increase since mid-1970s. This paper reviews the worldwide efforts to reduce the environmentally harmful effects of CFC refrigerants on the stratospheric ozone layer over the last 20 years. It examines the global environmental issues that catalysed recent changes in refrigeration industry. It discusses the effects of ozone depletion, the benefits of the CFC phase-out, the present and the future alternatives to CFC refrigerants.
