Development of climate-friendlier truck refrigeration systems in South Africa using R290 will be presented by Daniel Colbourne.
140 papers were presented during the successful 12th IIR Gustav Lorentzen conference on Natural refrigerants. CO2 was the most addressed refrigerant (74 papers), followed by hydrocarbons (34), ammonia (21) and water (4). We present below the summary of a paper along with the direct link where the paper can be downloaded in Fridoc database.
The EMC compressor – one of the world’s most efficient single speed compressors – for propane applications is among the technologies on display.
Propane remains the company’s preference for fractional-horsepower compressors.
The global manufacturer of hermetic compressors for refrigeration says HFC units may become unfeasible for large-scale production in the near future.
EPA GreenChill webinars on natural refrigerants could be affected.
An R290 icemaker was honoured at the Great Hospitality Show – an international HORECA tradeshow taking place in Birmingham, UK on 23-25 January – for its energy efficiency.
Manufacturers look forward to investing in a climate-friendly future as hydrocarbons become increasingly prevalent in commercial applications.
DC inverters to modulate compressor speed are among the refrigeration system innovations that Italian multinational CAREL hopes will boost natural refrigerant uptake in food retail.
The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the Russian Federation have opened a training centre in mountainous Armenia.
Italian manufacturer Epta sees customer demand for increased energy efficiency as a positive sign for natural refrigerants.
Italy’s Blupura was established in 2008, becoming a first-mover among water cooler manufacturers investing in hydrocarbon technology.
Hydrocarbons are ready to move into a host of applications, asserts a new paper from European natural refrigerant advocates Eurammon.
The must-attend conference of the year will take place on 20 February in Tokyo, right after the Supermarket Trade Show.
The Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol will help increase investment in natural refrigerant technologies, according to the French government.
In the late 1980s, those of us of a certain age became familiar with an international agreement called the Montreal Protocol. The goal of this agreement was the phaseout of ozone-depleting chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) refrigerants. Then, in 1999, Title VI of the U.S. Clean Air Act was modified to phase out high global-warming hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants. Now, once again, the fix has been deemed inadequate, and we are being asked to jump into a new generation of refrigerants.
The amended refrigeration and air conditioning directive, which entered into force on 1 January, will subsidise the installation of natural refrigerant-based systems in Germany.
The “natural” refrigerants media group Shecco has called for a far more stringent agreement on HFC refrigerant phase downs than that achieved at Kigali.
Among the more than 75 educational sessions, many are related to natural refrigerant technologies.
The first round of case studies showcasing innovations for industry leaders has been selected for ATMOsphere Japan 2017.
