GERMANY, Frankfurt (Main). It is one of the key dates for the refrigeration and air-conditioning branch: on 28 and 29 June, operators, planners, system engineers and an interested trade audience will all come together in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, for the eurammon Symposium 2018.
This year, the main issue will be the challenges arising from statutory provisions such as the F-Gases Regulation and the Ecodesign Directive.
International experts will show how refrigeration and air-conditioning systems with natural refrigerants offer an outstanding solution for meeting the increased ecological demands. The participants will gain an insight into current EU legislation and take a look at successful practical examples.
What does the F-Gases Regulation mean in concrete terms for the rating, operation, profitability and future viability of refrigeration systems? And which aspects does a system concept have to consider as a result of the Ecodesign Directive that has become more stringent as from 2018? "Current legislation makes high demands of the environmental compatibility and energy efficiency of a refrigerating system, thus creating excellent general conditions for viable systems with natural refrigerants that are not affected by the F-Gases Regulation", explains Bernd Kaltenbrunner, Chairman of eurammon.
The event will give participants an overview of current EU legislation. International experts will use specific reference projects to show how systems with natural refrigerants are proving successful in actual operation. More details about the individual papers will be provided soon.
