Call for natural refrigerant case studies

The ATMOsphere Review Board is now accepting abstract submissions for technology case studies to be presented at ATMOsphere Europe 2015. Case studies should focus on commerical, light commercial, industrial & transport refrigeration, heat pumps, air conditioning or new areas of application and must be applicable to the European market. Joint presentations between manufacturers/contractors and end users are welcome and preference will be given to applications in the warmer regions of Southern Europe. For more information about case study submission guidelines, please visit www.ATMO.org/europe2015/casestudies.

Updates on regulations & standards

Although the text of the new EU F-Gas Regulation has been decided and the legislative process is expected to conclude by summer 2014, discussions on the practical implementation of the new rules will continue to be an important topic. Taking place two months after the new F-Gas rules are expected to enter into force, ATMOsphere Europe 2015 will discuss the developments in relation to the implementation of the new legislation, including clarifications on how the industry should approach the implementation of certain requirements and terms.

The conference will also look at national measures and incentives for natural refrigerants, provide an update on EcoDesign and ISO standards, and highlight the latest market trends in the field of natural refrigerants.

New topics and highlights

ATMOsphere Europe 2015 features a diverse programme covering a range of applications from commercial, light commercial, industrial & transport refrigeration, to heat pumps and air conditioning. New discussion topics include convenience stores, hotels, restaurants, cafes, hospitals and more, showing that natural refrigerant technologies are readily available and that different industries can learn from the experiences of other industries applying similar technologies. Additional highlights added to the 2015 conference are more business networking opportunities, 1-minute project pitches session, Entrepreneur session, CEO interviews and more.
