More information on HCFCs 

Although there are 34 currently controlled HCFCs, only a few are commonly used. This page lists how those HCFCs are used. These uses will be restricted as the phaseout of HCFCs continues. All non-refrigerant uses of HCFC-22 and HCFC-142b are banned as of January 1, 2010. Likewise, all non-refrigerant uses of HCFC-123 and HCFC-124, HCFC-225ca, and HCFC-225cb are banned as of January 1, 2015. EPA continues to evaluate alternatives to HCFCs through its Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program.
