Explanation

the OA is D. Imminent means: likely to occur at any moment, soon. The tone of the sentence suggests that the CFC are dangerous and they are going to be depleted any time rapidly.

Considering also they the strong companies' opposition to produce such chemicals had weakened, the ban is imminent.
