2002 report of the aerosols, sterilants, miscellaneous uses and carbon tetrachloride technical options committee (ATOC)

United Nations Environment Programme (2003)

More than 10 billion aerosol products were used worldwide in 2001, the largest amount on record for this industry. Commercial use of aerosols developed after the Second World War based on the unique properties offered by CFC propellants. However, their use has been phased out so successfully that less than 1 percent of the 2001 production still used CFCs.
