Causes of Ozone depletion

Our earth will not be able to sustain life without the ozone layer. The ozone layer has been depleting at an alarming level in recent years. The cause of ozone deletion is release of Chlorofluorocarbons in the atmosphere. Chlorofluorocarbons break down the ozone molecules punching holes in the atmosphere. The Chlorofluorocarbons are expelled into the atmosphere by:
  • Refrigeration
  • Aerosol spray cans
  • Air conditioning
  • Foam insulation
  • Cleaning agents
  • Packing material etc
