ABSTRACT
This article reports that one-fifth of the world's total supply of carbon credits has been cornered by Gujarat Fluorochemicals under a Kyoto Protocol trading scheme. A United Nations web site showed that a judging panel formally approved 780,000 tonnes of pollution cuts, giving the company a total of 2.9 million tonnes in issued carbon credits. The chemical plant produces pollution cuts by destroying the greenhouse gas HFC 23, a by-product in the refrigerant industry.
