Abstract

As a result of the 1987 Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer and the 1990 U.S. Clean Air Act, there began a movement toward phaseout of the use of the halon fire suppressants. The HOTWC was initiated as a forum for such contributory topics as fire suppression science, information on the available alternatives, the status of pertinent environmental knowledge, and regulatory trends. This publication contains all the papers presented at the 14 annual Halon Options Technical Working Conferences from 1991 to 2004.
