China to hold international symposium on CO2 tech
From 17-18 September, at the Crystal Palace Hotel in Tianjin, China, the International Symposium on Natural Working Fluid CO2 Refrigeration and Heat Pump Technology will be held to discuss how to enhance the market competitiveness of CO2 in China.
Experts from the world over will gather in Tianjin from 17-18 September at the Crystal Palace Hotel for the International Symposium on Natural Working Fluid CO2 Refrigeration and Heat Pump Technology to discuss the market prospects of CO2 in China. The symposium comes at a crucial time as the country is currently implementing Stage II of its HCFC phase-out management plan.
As this process accelerates, China is increasingly looking towards CO2 as the ideal alternative refrigerant with the most market potential.
To promote and intensify the amount of technical knowledge exchange, the conference will feature some of the world’s most prominent technical CO2 experts to share their knowledge.
Keynote speakers include Prof. Pega Hrnjak of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Prof. Armin Hafner of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, and Klaas Visser of Australia-based KAV Consulting. They will take to the stage along with several local experts from China and other leading scholars from around the world.
Jan Dusek, managing director (shecco Japan) & business development manager (shecco APAC), will provide key data on the latest market trends and policy.
Dusek will be joining a panel of representatives from key industry organization the China Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Industry Association (CRAA), China’s Foreign Economic Cooperation Office, Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP-FECO), and other major players.
The event signals the crucial role that China’s government and leading industry associations expect CO2 technology will play in the Chinese market going forward.
The symposium is intended to further accelerate the development of CO2 technology in refrigeration and air conditioning, leading to further widespread adoption of CO2 in China.
The event is jointly hosted by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Foreign Economic Cooperation Office, Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP-FECO).
Co-organisers include the China Refrigeration and Air-conditioning Industry Association (CRAA), the Chinese Association of Refrigeration (CAR), the Tianjin Association of Refrigeration (TAR), and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).
