The main purpose of workshops was creation of effective network of freons recovery and recycling centers, improvement of maintenance of refrigeration equipment and conditioners for preventing intentional and accidental CFC emissions into atmosphere, public awareness rising on ozone layer depleting and climate change problems.

Among the workshops participants there were technicians of companies dealing with maintenance, installation, assembling of refrigeration equipment, teachers of technical universities and colleges, where refrigeration and conditioning systems specialists are being taught.
