The last two days, our team was attending the “Workshop on energy efficiency opportunities while phasing-down Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs)” organized by the UN Ozone Secretariat prior to the 40th meeting of the Open-Ended Working Group (OEWG) of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol.
The ARCON 2018 represented a further component of global events focussing on natural refrigeration solutions. Being Asia’s only convention on ammonia refrigeration so far and organised by the Association of Ammonia Refrigeration (AAR), the conference and exhibition took place in India’s capital Delhi on 19 January 2018.
The event on the F-gas Regulation (EU) No. 517/2014 scheduled February 2, 2018 had been eagerly awaited: In the autumn of 2017, associations of the refrigeration and air conditioning industry had already written an open letter to the German Federal Government on the difficult situation of small- and medium-sized businesses in Germany due to rising prices and dwindling availability of refrigerants. The information event was organised by the Federal Environmental Agency (UBA), on behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMUB).
