Epta, with the Life-C4R project, globally sponsors the second edition of the #WorldRefrigerationDay. A day established on 26 June to honour William Thomson, inventor of the Kelvin scale and one of the fathers of thermodynamics. The aim is to raise awareness among the industry and the public towards sustainable management of the entire cold chain: from the refrigeration sector to that of air-conditioning and heat pumps.
The initiative, which again this year boasts the support of the UNEP (United Nations Environmental Programme), draws the attention of the entire Planet to the significant role that the HVACR sector plays, every day, in multiple aspects of people’s lives, charting the refrigeration route of the future, increasingly natural and sustainable.
A philosophy in line with the leitmotiv of the three-year Life C4R – Carbon 4 Retail Refrigeration project by Epta, co-funded by the EU, with the aim of demonstrating that it is possible to completely replace HCFC and HFC with transcritical CO2, in order to reduce the carbon footprint and, at the same time, achieve a significant reduction in energy consumption.
In Spain Epta will sponsor the web conference Día Mundial de la Refrigeración and in Italy it will take part in the webinar entitled “The latest technologies in Conditioning and Refrigeration at the time of post Covid-19” organised by Centro Studi Galileo in association with ATF – Associazione dei Tecnici Italiani del Freddo (Association of Italian Refrigeration Technicians). Some of the most authoritative Italian voices of the HVACR sector will take to the virtual stage, including Francesco Mastrapasqua, Advocacy & Regulatory Affairs Manager of Epta, who will give a talk on “Solutions for sustainable commercial refrigeration with zero climate impact”.
This is a unique opportunity to draw attention to the important goals achieved by Epta as part of the development of technologies that look to the future, to help guide the sector towards green alternatives. A veritable “sustainable revolution” carried on by Epta precisely to introduce ingenious natural refrigerant solutions to the market, in any climate zone.
