The Report was written by the Scientific Assessment Panel to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. CFC-11 (CCl3F) was reportedly fully controlled under the Montreal Protocol since 2010. However, a 2018 scientific paper revealed that instead of decreasing, CFC-11 emissions were increasing. In reaction, the Protocol parties agreed to Decision XXX/3: Unexpected emissions of trichlorofluoromethane (CFC-11). This Report addresses: current and past observations of CFC-11 atmospheric abundances; information on the CFC-11 global and regional emission increase and subsequent decrease; changes derived for emissions of dichlorodifluoromethane (CFC-12, CCl2F2) and carbon tetrachloride (CCl4); estimates of CFC-11 banks (CFC-11 that has been produced but has not yet been emitted); scenarios of future emissions and atmospheric concentrations; and the impact on the stratospheric ozone layer of the anomalous enhancement in CFC-11 emissions.
