Environmentalists, climatologists, earth scientists and meteorologists have urged industrialists especially the manufacturers of refrigerators and air conditioners to phase out the use of the HCFC in compressors. 
 
Addressing a workshop, they said that hydrochloro-fluorocarbons (HCFCs), a greenhouse gas that depletes ozone are considered as a major cause of depletion of the ozone layer, the upper atmospheric blanket that shields us from some of the harmful ultraviolet radiation from the sun.
 
HCFCs were found to have a negative effect on the earth’s stratospheric ozone layer which protects humans, animals and plants against the harmful ultraviolet-B (UV-B) rays of the sun, they observed.
