On Friday, a meeting commemorating this year's International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer on Sept. 16 was held in Beijing by the ministry, the United Nations environment and development programs.

During the meeting, MEP vice minister Zhao Yingmin said more than one million tonnes of ODS had been phased out globally.

China will encourage and support research into alternative technological substitutes for ODS, he said.
