Governmental policies on perfluorocarbons (PFCs) mitigation and its cleaner production measures case study in Taiwan (pp. 619-634) $100.00
Authors:  (Wen-Tien Tsai)
Abstract:
Taiwan, a country in southeastern Asia, is playing a vital role in mitigating saturated perfluorocompounds (PFCs), including gaseous PFCs (i.e., SF6, NF3, CF4, C2F6, C3F8, c-C4F8, and C4F10) and liquid PFCs (i.e., C5F12, C6F14, C7F16, C8F18, and C9F20), because these commercially industrial substances are potent greenhouse gases mostly blanketed into the Kyoto Protocol. Furthermore, the Government has established the National Council for Sustainable Development (NCSD), a ministry-level organization, for pursuing sustainability in this country and fulfilling its responsibility as a member of the international community. This review paper was thus centered on reviewing the commercial/industrial uses, the environmental hazards of PFCs, their current consumption status, and the cleaner production measures adopted by the local industries in Taiwan. This review paper was also centered on summarizing the governmental policies on promoting PFCs mitigation through the encouragement of regulatory, economic and financial approaches. It was concluded that Taiwan was in a positive trend to mitigate PFCs emissions in the past decade under the promotion of its policy framework. Further, the successful case could be developed into providing a demonstrated example for other islands and developed countries in progress toward global sustainability.
