EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AN30 Publication ID: Spring 2010 
Title: Protection of Stratospheric Ozone: Revision to Listing of Carbon Dioxide Total Flooding Fire Extinguishing Systems Restricting Use to Only Unoccupied Areas 
Abstract: Section 612 of the Clean Air Act requires EPA to identify alternatives to Class I and II ozone-depleting substances and to publish lists of acceptable and unacceptable substitutes. Carbon dioxide is currently listed as an "acceptable" total flooding substitute for ozone-depleting halons. Carbon dioxide total flooding systems are used in industrial applications such as automobile paint rooms and in marine applications such as machinery spaces. Recent changes to national fire protection industry standards reflect a need to improve personnel safety requirements for carbon dioxide systems by limiting its applications. Based on new information on the continued and growing use of carbon dioxide total flooding fire extinguishing systems, EPA is proposing to revise the listing to "acceptable subject to narrowed use limits" to ensure that the use of this agent does not pose greater risk than other substitutes that are available. Use would be limited to unoccupied areas where personnel could not be exposed to lethal concentration of the agent.
