Brussels, Carugate, 19 July 2022. UL Solutions, a global service provider to the HVACR industry and beyond, has become an official BridgeBuilding Partner (sponsor) of the 2022 Eurovent Summit taking place from 25 to 28 October in Antalya, Turkey.
UL Solutions is a global leader in applied safety science. The organisation transforms safety, security, and sustainability challenges into opportunities for customers in more than 100 countries. UL Solutions delivers testing, inspection, and certification services, together with software products and advisory offerings, that support customers’ product innovation and business growth.
UL Solutions will assume an active role in the Summit’s flagship event Eurovent Innovation/HUB focused on #BuildingBridges between innovation and sustainability. Mr Dustin Steward, Director and Global Industry Lead for Appliances, HVAC, and Components at UL Solutions, will contribute to the event with a keynote speech dedicated to lower GWP refrigerants.
In this respect, Steward remarked: “While low GWP refrigerants are more environmentally friendly, manufacturers must be mindful of the additional layers of risk involved in their use. As a leading independent safety science organisation, UL Solutions has conducted extensive research on flammable refrigerants and has developed thorough expertise to support manufacturers during the design of their next-generation products.” Steward highlighted that, “among UL’s available services in fact, there is the unique Modelling and Simulation programme that helps us to predict flammable refrigerant behaviour in circuits and potentially critical areas. Through this advanced analysis, manufacturers can lower the number of physical prototypes needed for certification tests. On top of that, a faster assessment of product design revisions meets both environmental and process acceleration issues that manufacturers committed to sustainability are pursuing.”
This year’s EUROVENTSUMMIT is co-organised with ISKID, the Turkish Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Manufacturers’ Association. It aims at #BuildingBridges between manufacturers and consultants, planners, installers, trade associations and policymakers between Europe, the East and beyond, toward more sustainable and circular products and a more socially and environmentally responsible industry.
Among other activities, participants can look forward to a rich seminar programme focused on both ventilation and refrigeration organised by ISKID and TTMD (Turkish Society of HVAC and Sanitary Engineers) with involvement from UL Solutions in English and Turkish. There will also be an interactive policy panel on the first night, which will connect many different stakeholders in the industry. Stay tuned for updates on the speakers and the soon-to-be-launched registration via www.eurovent-summit.eu and the Eurovent LinkedIn page.
