The chlorine in CFCs is torn away from the compound by the sun's powerful UV rays making the lone Chlorine free to "attacks" the ozone molecules (O3), making them lose an oxygen molecule. The result is O2, and chlorine monoxide, CLO. One chlorine molecule can repeat this cycle over a thousand times, destroying the ozone layer.
It must become a grass-roots movement. Bussiness and Industry create these products, and they must be required as a part of their planning to safeguard the public and to properly dispose of their waste products.
Angoulême CFC was created in 1920.
These are some of the man-made greenhouse gases: * SF6 (Sulfur hexafluoride) * CFC-11 * CFC-12 * CFC=1113 * Carbon tetrachloride * HCFC-22
This is since there are still cfc molecules in the earth's stratosphere which will remain there for a very long time (considering the amount of cfc's used in aerosols and old refigerators).
When CFC chemicals are released into the air the chemicals react with the ozone layer to thin it. The sun's ultraviolet radiation can then get to the earth.
they are not harmful to the environment
CFC's are destroying our ozone layer. These CFC's are one of the most harmful chemicals of the environment.
some colloids cause pollution in the environment...some colloids release cfc's that contributes to the ozone layer depletion...
the source of cfc is mainly from refrigerators n ac's...increase in the emission of cfc may lead to a hole in the ozone layer,the result of which is harmful rays such as ultra violet rays reaching out to people which causes skin cancer
Simple answer: it is believed CFC destroys the ozone layer in the atmosphere which creates problems with the environment we all live in.
CFc's are harmful to the stratospheric region of ozone. They deplete it.
Refrigerants are harmful. But the most harmful are CFC's.
CFC affect refers to the harmful chemicals damaging the ozone layer. The ozone's outer layer is to block harmful UV rays from hurting the living things on the planet, CFC slowly eats away at this layer.
It is CFC. It destroys the ozone.
A CFC molecule is very harmful. It can destroy 100,000 molecules of ozone.
CFC's are some of the refrigerants. They are the ones causing most of the damage.
CFC's are stable. They are compounds of carbon, Chlorine and Fluorine.
