Jan. 21 (Bloomberg) -- European Union member states agreed
to restrict the use of imported carbon credits linked to certain
industrial gases in the world's largest emissions system from
the start of 2013, according to the EU regulator.
The European Commission proposed Nov. 25 to put limits on
United Nations-sponsored offsets linked to hydrofluorocarbon-23
and some nitrous oxide credits. The draft was voted today by the
Climate Change Committee, including representatives of the EU's
27 national governments.
