Carbon tetrachloride (CCl4 or CTC) is a major ozone-depleting substance and greenhouse gas. However, estimated CTC sources and sinks are inconsistent with abundance observations. Recent work suggests that there is a large unknown CTC source of about 39 Gg yr-1 and a 35-year lifetime. This workshop’s purpose is to bring together science, industry, and technology experts to exchange information and to coordinate research activities across disciplines for fully closing the CTC budget. This workshop will involve solicited and submitted presentations related to all aspects of the CTC problem.
