GTZ-Proklima develops alternative to enviromentally harmful CTC

15
Dec '08
We all know that Carbon Tetra Chloride (CTC), a common solvent, posses a health risk and endangers life on earth. Unfortunately, CTC applications are at rampant in textile industry as cleaning agent to remove stains and to degrease wool.

In a situation like this, GTZ-Proklima, a German organization is offering technical assistance to industries using CTC to provide alternative solutions and eliminate the use of the same. A note from GTZ-Proklima on National CTC Phase-out plan is mailed for your information.

Meeting the Challenge:

The problem:
Carbon Tetra Chloride (CTC), a common solvent, posses a health risk and endangers life on earth. Occupational exposures affect the central nervous system (CNS) causing dizziness, headache and vomiting.

Once evaporated, CTC rises up to the atmosphere where it destroys the ozone layer and allows more UV rays to pass through the ozone shield that protects our earth. UV rays, on the other hand, contribute to eye cataract and skin cancer, besides endangering plants and aquatic life.

The solution:
To protect our earth and environment we need to stop using CTC and other substances that destroy ozone layer.

The resolution:
India along with 190 other signatories to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, has resolved to remove ozone depleting substances from its markets.

Facing the challenge ahead:
A three-pronged approach such as decline in CTC supply, diversity of use and selection of alternatives is put in place to combat the challenge ahead

The industries affected:
From among the industries currently using CTC, the largest users affected by the CTC phase-out are the textile and metal industries.

The GTZ-Proklima assistance:
The assistance is provided primarily on evaluation of requirements, substitute identification, substitute assessment, publication of informative and technical literature and other technical assistance.

In fact, GTZ-Proklima offers technical assistance to industries currently using up to 10 metric tons or 6,250 liters of CTC per year. The free-of-charge services aim to provide competent guidance in identifying substitutes that do not comprise on quality and competitiveness of the industry.
