For the twelve million Mexicans who suffer from respiratory disease, new inhalers free of Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) -- another key step in the phase-out of CFCs, under the Montreal protocol, the global treaty helping to protect the ozone layer.
This video news release tell the story of how the only Mexican company that makes inhalers completely revamped its production line and processes, with the help of ground-breaking technical know-how and training from the United Nations Industrial Development Organization UNIDO. To ease the transition to new machines and technology, over two and a half million dollars came from the multilateral fund formed by countries signed up to the Montreal Protocol.
The Mexican breakthrough has come as UNIDO is overseeing similar transitions to CFC-free inhalers in Iran, China and Egypt -- enabling domestic companies to make the switch cost-effectively, and keep down the cost of inhalers for patients of respiratory disease.
The video features interviews with key figures in Mexican industry and government, and an end-user of the new inhaler, as well as extensive footage of the new production line in action.
