Natural refrigerant trends, technologies – Climate Control News

Organic refrigerant installations have been increasing around the world and this trend is set to continue as the global market shifts in order to more climate friendly cooling solutions.

At the same time, the marketplace itself is also changing, driven by various factors such as the COVID-19 pandemic, altering consumer patterns and new technological advancements.

This session at ARBS will look at the latest natural refrigerant trends and technologies.

The presentation will focus on ammonia, CO2, plus hydrocarbons, with figures on the most recent installation numbers; and how these trends are driving (or in some cases, impeding) the adoption of natural refrigerants in key regions. What are the particular key drivers and barriers for the adoption of natural refrigerants and how is the market evolving?

This program will be presented simply by ATMOsphere co-founder, Jan Dusek.

He holds a Doctor associated with Engineering degree in System Design from Hosei University in Tokyo and a Master’s degree through the Czech Technical College in Prague.

Dusek has worked all over the globe and is currently based in Tokyo where he is responsible for business development activities and monitoring Asian markets on behalf of ATMOsphere APAC.

Cold hard facts

Expert Group principal consultant, Graeme Dewerson, will return to ARBS again this year to present the Chilly Hard Facts about Australia’s cooling economy.

Cold Hard Facts 2021 is a publication produced by the Expert Team on behalf of the federal government providing an analysis of the Australian ‘cooling economy’ as it transitions toward  lower GWP refrigerants plus technology in line with the HFC phase down.

This presentation will provide an overview from the newest report findings including industry trends, and the emergence of brand new technology within the main equipment classes.

Dewerson has worked within the RAC sector for 20 years, initially in the UK before moving to Australia in 2012.

He worked for A-Gas in commercial management plus business development roles developing a strong technical knowledge of refrigerants and their applications.
