About this event

UNIDO ATMOsphere Technology Summit - Natural Solutions for Developing Countries: ATMOsphere is proud to announce their first conference organised in collaboration with a UN agency, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). The main objective of the joint UNIDO ATMOsphere Technology Summit is to provide end-users and manufacturers from developing countries, who are active in the Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning, Refrigeration (HVAC&R) and foam sectors with practical solutions for overcoming the challenges faced while introducing natural substances as refrigerants, such as CO2, ammonia, hydrocarbons, water and air.

Taking place on 3 & 4 June 2013, at the UNIDO headquarters in Vienna, this conference will present market trends, policy updates and technology available in developing countries to around 200 industry stakeholders and decision makers from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East as well as North and South America.
