Danish Technological Institute (DTI) to host a high-ranking conference

The Danish Technological Institute (DTI) is organising a high-ranking, two-day conference on refrigeration in the supermarket sector. It will take place at Taastrup (Copenhagen) from 8-9 November 2017. This conference focusses on the energy challenges and on how all parties of the cooling chain may benefit from the ongoing and upcoming regulations and by having an up-to-date climate policy. The ongoing trends towards natural refrigerants, especially CO2, and the supermarkets’ shift from R404A to CO2 will be analysed and discussed by major European refrigeration experts. In the course of the event, two interesting sessions on the challenges for producers, suppliers, installers, and end-users will also take place. The Danish Energy Agency is contributing to the conference, which is supported by Eurovent Association.

The Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) has published its 2017 report on the use of refrigerants (HFCs and naturals) in Europe’s’ supermarkets

Since 2008, EIA’s Chilling Facts has been documenting the growing uptake of natural refrigerants among some of the world’s leading retailers, reflecting a market shift towards a more climate-friendly refrigeration in the supermarket sector. Twenty-two (large, but also small) retailers have participated in this 2017 report by submitting data covering the 2015 calendar year from supermarkets across 37 countries. This report assesses the impact of the F-Gas Regulation, the trends in HFC and natural refrigerants usage, and the energy efficiency of HFC-free systems. Within this article, the Eurovent Team has summarised key takeaways for members.

The American association’s final report assesses ’Benchmarking Risk by Whole Room Scale Leaks and Ignitions Testing of A2L Refrigerants’

The ongoing global effort to phase down the use of high-GWP potential refrigerants requires an effective, and evidence-based research on the on the A2L refrigerants which have been identified as potential replacement for refrigerants currently used in HVAC and refrigeration systems. In June 2017, AHRI has published its report ‘Benchmarking Risk by Whole Room Scale Leaks and Ignitions Testing of A2L Refrigerants’. Within this 365-page report, AHRI has assessed several A2L refrigerants. The report would be instrumental in updating the relevant national codes and safety standards so that appropriate, climate-friendly alternatives can be safely used in air conditioning and refrigeration equipment.
