12-13 of April, 2013, the seventh National Congress of the “Ecoholod” Republican Public Association (RAC) was held in Bishkek.
It has previously been difficult to cost-effectively measure the performance of refrigeration systems in operation. Now there is the ClimaCheck method.
A hospital in Aydin, Turkey, is to serve as a test case to demonstrate that it is possible to reduce energy consumption by 50% and decrease greenhouse gas emissions with retrofitting solutions.
A new report calls for a wholesale change in the way engineering is promoted in UK schools. The report from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers “Five Tribes: Personalizing Engineering Education” is calling on government, teachers, industry and science technology engineering and maths (STEM) organizations to take into account young people’s diverse values and attitudes to try and inspire them about engineering.
The EU’s REAL Alternatives learning programme for engineers working with low GWP alternative refrigerants will launch on March 19 with a free webinar.
Emerson Climate Technologies will be discussing how modulating technologies are enabling enhanced comfort and improved efficiency in a free webinar.
Physicists claim a breakthrough in explaining a rare property of an exotic magnetic material; potentially ease the path to magnetic refrigeration.
A Tegut store employing CO2 refrigeration, cabinet doors and LED lighting is the first supermarket to be recognised with an environmental Blue Angel award.
A soon-to-be-launched mentoring scheme promises a unique opportunity for knowledge exchange between industry professionals at different stages in their careers.
The implications of the US EPA’s delisting of certain common refrigerants is to be the subject of the next Emerson webinar.
The European Commission has opened a public consultation to evaluate the effectiveness of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive.
Air conditioning units are reported to pose a greater fire risk than any other common household appliance in Singapore.
The EPA has announced that low GWP alternative refrigerants R450A, R448A, R513A and R449A are to be approved for use.
Refrigerant producers, refrigeration equipment manufacturers and green groups have welcomed the US EPA’s usage bans on high GWP HFCs.
With new US HFC refrigerant bans about to become law, industry pressure has delayed measures which could have banned R134a and R404A from the end of this year.
A Trane air-cooled chiller employing a new low-GWP refrigerant replacement for R410A is to be presented at the IIR conference in Yokohama.
The standards of training and knowledge set by the European F-gas regulations are proving attractive to non-EU-member states.
Although HFCs are promoted as being zero ODP refrigerants, they do have a small but measurable effect on ozone depletion, according to a new study by NASA.
New proposals by the US EPA will see a tightening of HFC refrigerant emission, venting and sales laws.

CO2 is termed a “Natural Refrigerant” because it exists in the natural environment. Release into the atmosphere from refrigeration systems has a negligible effect compared to other CO2 sources that are driving the global warming debate. As a refrigerant, it is a manufactured product that conforms to strict purity specifications. Its physical properties require special handling.
