Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

A 100-year time horizon GWP of 9300 was given for FC-72 in the IPCC 4th Science Assessment Report.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

The 100-year time horizon GWP for FC-72 is 9300
Executive summary:

A 100-year time horizon GWP of 9300 was given for FC-72 in the IPCC 4th Science Assessment Report. This the standard reference work for evaluation of materials having a high global warming potential. The tabulated values are deemed reliable with restriction.
