Avoiding ozone-damaging CFC-11 in foam insulation products

ScienceMan's picture

In light of the extremely alarming news of the widespread  use of ozone-depleting CFC-11 in foam insulation products in China (see for example https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-44738952), what should consumers and contractors look for when selecting such products to be sure not to be caught up in or contributing to this problem? What guarantees or assurances can we look for to ensure such practices are not also still being used in other products and/or regions?
