This Report reveals efforts of the Halons Technical Options Committee (HTOC) to identify, develop and test alternatives that can used in place of the halons. Under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete The Ozone Layer, the use of halons is being phased out in industries such as: merchant shipping, oil and gas production, and in civil aviation, as well as in the military, for explosion suppression, and in countries with economies in transition. The report reveals the progress that has been made towards the objective of reducing the need for halons, and discusses some of the problems that still have to be addressed.
