US invites more methyl bromide exemptions

The US EPA has invited applications for critical use exemptions (CUEs) for the fumigant, methyl bromide, for 2012 and beyond. Applications must be submitted by July 20th. The US authorities will review them and submit a national nomination package to Montreal Protocol members by January 24th 2010. The Parties to the Protocol are expected to authorise CUEs for 2012 in November 2010. Some 4,195 tonnes of methyl bromide will be available for CUEs this year, with 2,275.7 tonnes coming from new production and 1,919.2 tonnes from stocks ( Agrow No 568, p 16).
