Presentation on theme: "World Consumption of Methyl Bromide"— Presentation transcript:
1 World Consumption of Methyl Bromide Ken GlasseyMinistry for Primary IndustriesNew Zealand&MBTOC member
2 Montreal ProtocolThe most successful international treaty ever, signed by 197 countriesAim to phase out PRODUCTION of ozone depleting gasesMethyl bromide added in 1992Phase out of non QPS use in developed countries was required by 2005 and developing countries by 2015After those dates required to apply to the UNEP with a critical use nominationQPS is exempt controls but countries asked to reduce use
4 History of usePeak of nearly 70,000 tonnes of methyl bromide use in early 1990’sMany countries have totally phased out methyl bromide useReduced to 12,665 tonnes 2012Quarantine and preshipment is now 70% of the world use50 countries reported QPS use in 2012Figures Source: Ozone Secretariat Data Access Centre, April 2014
5 QPS use v Non QPS useGlobal QPS consumption was approximately 8860 metric tonnes in 2012 down from 9,436 reported for The 2012 figure is about 2.3 times the controlled consumption (non QPS) for the same year (3,805 metric tonnes) which has been dropping significantly consistently as opposed to QPS which is showing a slight downward trend.
6 Non QPS useGlobal controlled (non QPS) consumption for 2012 was 3,805 metric tonnes which has been dropping consistently.
7 QPS use A5 = developing, non- A5 = developed countries Over all, developed countries consumption continues to decrease (with the exception of Australia and New Zealand) and the developing countries show a slight upward trend.
8 Main categories of MB use for QPS# Category of useA5Non-A5WorldwideGrain & dried foodstuffs18%8%14%Sawn wood and WPM*12%23%Logs29%17%21%Soil in situ0%30%Misc. and other16%7%Total identified uses75%70%80%* WPM – Wood packaging material; # - TEAP Progress Report 2011The main four uses amount to over 70% of the MB consumed for QPSTechnical Economic Assessment Panel estimates that % of these top four consumption categories (grain, logs, soil, WPM) can be replaced immediately with commercially available alternatives

19 IPPC Replacement or reduction of the use of methyl bromide as a phytosanitary measure (2008) Recommends a number of things to do to:1. Replacement of Methyl Bromide Use as a Phytosanitary Measure2. Reducing Volumes of Methyl Bromide Use as a Phytosanitary Measure3. Physically Reducing Methyl Bromide Emissions4. Recording Methyl Bromide Use as a Phytosanitary Measure5. Guidelines for Appropriate Use of Methyl Bromide as a Phytosanitary Measure
20 Record MB use in Categories Bulbs, corms, tubers and rhizomes (intended for planting)Cut flowers and branches (including foliage)Fresh fruit and vegetablesGrain, cereals and oil seeds for consumption including rice (not intended for planting)Dried foodstuffs (including herbs, dried fruit, coffee, cocoa)Nursery stock (plants intended for planting other than seed), and associated soil and other growing mediaSeeds (intended for planting)Wood packaging materialsWood (including round wood, sawn wood, wood chips)Whole logs (with or without bark)Hay, straw, thatch grass, dried animal fodder (other than grains and cereals listed above)
21 Categories of MB use Cotton and other fibre crops and products Tree nuts (almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts etc.)Structures and equipmentBuildings with quarantine pests (including elevators, dwellings, factories, storage facilities)Equipment (including used agricultural machinery and vehicles), empty shipping containers and reused packagingOther itemsPersonal effects, furniture, crafts, artefacts, hides, fur and skins
