About the product

The Methyl Bromide Technical Options Committee, established by the Parties to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, identifies existing and potential alternatives to methyl bromide (MB). This 1998 assessment reports on MB usage; quantities produced and consumed; and existing and potential alternative treatments for its uses as a fumigant. Providing a developing country perspective, it also covers quarantine and pre-shipment issues and methods for reducing MB emissions.
