Eco-Crimes: Ozone Killer

The starting point of the film is the research, carried out by an environmental organisation in London. Detailed documentation shows FCKW being smuggled into Europe and North America, although FCKW production was already forbidden in 1987, by the Montreal Protocol of world organisation. This film brings to light that despite this milestone in international politics having been achieved, illegal business with FCKW is not unusual, and thus the protective Ozone layer is being further damaged.
