US proposes methyl bromide allocations

The US EPA proposes to allocate nearly 2 million tonnes of the fumigant, methyl bromide, for critical uses in 2011. Parties to the Montreal Protocol had approved the use of 2.1 million tonnes, or 7.8% of the 1991 US consumption baseline of 25.5 million tonnes. Most uses of methyl bromide were phased out in developed countries in 2005. The EPA plans to allow up to 482,333 kg of pre-phase-out inventory for critical uses this year, with 1.5 million tonnes coming from new production or imports. Around 92% would be for pre-plant use and the remainder for post-harvest applications.
