On behalf of our Team, we would like to wish you a very nice holiday season. It is our wish that 2020 brings all of us many new business opportunities, and a lot of professional growth, health, and happiness. For the Eurovent Association and its Chapter Eurovent Middle East, this year was marked with many important developments, of which we would like to share a few. The Eurovent review 2019 can be downloaded via this link.
Last Wednesday, 11 December, the European Commission presented the European Green Deal, an ambitious package of policy measures geared towards making Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. With bold investments in green technologies, boosts to innovation, and support for climate friendly industries, the policy package offers new growth perspectives for businesses in the European HVACR sector, and the potential to bolster the position of our industry as global leaders in clean and sustainable products.
As outcome of the two-year Special Project ‘Evaporative Cooling 2030’, the Eurovent Association has published a set of documents including a new Eurovent Recommendation and a dedicated flyer, providing a clear overview of what the evaporative cooling industry saves in terms of CO2 emissions today and what it can save tomorrow. These documents are complemented by the first-ever European evaporative cooling industry monograph providing a clear indication on its size and scope.
As you may already know, the Eurovent Association is switching to a new membership structure as of 1 January 2020. After this date, manufacturer participation in working groups and access to the Extranet will be reserved for contributing members only (i.e. Corresponding Members). Read on to find out more about this change and learn what to do in order to keep all your Eurovent benefits.
From 2 to 5 October 2019, the Eurovent Association, Eurovent Middle East, and Eurovent Certita Certification are going to be at ISK-SODEX 2019 – one of the largest international exhibitions for HVACR, Pumps, Valves, Fittings, Water Treatment, and Insulation. Eurovent will be at your disposal for requests concerning legislation, standardisation, certification, and general industry developments.
With more than 2bn EUR in exports, the air conditioning industry continues to add value to the Turkish economy. The industry will soon come together at the 14th ISK-SODEX, also known as the International Exhibition for HVACR, Pumps, Valves, Fittings, Fire Prevention, Water Treatment and Insulation. It will bring together purchasing committees from the EU, Africa, and South America, with Turkish manufacturers to form new partnerships.
Representatives of ISKID (Turkey’s Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Manufacturers’ Association) and Eurovent signed an agreement to jointly organise the 2020 EUROVENTSUMMIT. They announced that the next edition of Europe’s major gathering for Indoor Climate (HVAC), Process Cooling, and Food Cold Chain Technologies will take place in Antalya, Turkey, from 22 to 25 September 2020.
The Eurovent Association has developed a plain and concise Position Paper recommending the European Commission to introduce limits on the particulate matter concentration in the supply air of ventilation systems and to develop a comprehensive approach to PM in indoor air itself. The Position Paper reflects the industry’s support for regulatory requirements that level the playing field and foster recognition of the importance of adequate ventilation for the health and well-being of building occupants.
The Eurovent Team is listening to your feedback and constantly working to further improve the Eurovent website. The latest, recently launched feature allows website visitors to filter our Document Web Shop by language to not miss any important documents released in their native language.
The HVACR sector, an industry of significant value to the Turkish economy, will again come together at ISK-SODEX between 2 and 5 October 2019 in Istanbul. The exhibition aims to facilitate new commercial cooperation opportunities between Turkish manufacturers and delegations from the European Union, Africa, and South America. Eurovent is an official supporter of the event.
