Ecology

In the 1000 km wide atmosphere of Earth, there is a layer of particular significance. It surrounds us at the height of between 10 and 50 km above the Earth surface and is called ozone layer. This layer consists of ozone molecules (trioxygen O3) and is of particular importance as it stops ultraviolet radiation harmful to all living organisms. Since the end of the 1970s, there has been a significant decrease in the ozone content. The reduction of ozone concentration in the ozone layer is commonly known as the ozone hole. A closer study of the phenomenon has revealed that the rapid depletion of the ozone layer began in the 1970s, and that the main cause of its intensification are the reactions caused by the presence of chlorine- and/or bromine-including substances in the atmosphere. These elements are present in the man-made substances such as extinguishing gases which were used in the past, including halon 1211, halon 1301 and halon 2402. Halons have a relatively long disintegration time, allowing them to reach the stratosphere in which they release bromine that initiates the ozone depleting process. Reactions with bromine are responsible for 25 percent of the chemical ozone destruction over the Antarctic and 50 percent over the Arctic. The potential of ozone destruction caused by halon is 10 times higher than, for example, by chlorofluorocarbon gases (CFCs). One kilogram of Halon 1211 can destroy 50 tons of ozone. That is why it is so important to legally and carefully manage the halon resources. As a company with many years of experience, we are able to manage the halon-type media without any emission to the environment.
