ATMOsphere Australia 2018 returns to Sydney and will bring together more HVAC&R industry leaders from Australia and New Zealand to discuss the region’s latest natural refrigerant developments.
The conference, taking place a day before ARBS - Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Building Services Exhibition (8 -10 May 2018), the biggest convention in the region that will bring thousands of HVAC&R stakeholders in town. The event's line up will be a great opportunity to meet all your local and international peers in one trip.
After two successful editions in Melbourne and Sydney, this year's ATMOsphere Australia will build on the knowledge gained and promises to become bigger and better. The event will feature:
• leading end users
• government representatives
• training experts
ATMOsphere Australia 2018 will allow for more neworking opportunities with top industry professionals and will act as a forum for learning and exchanging opinions with the market’s leaders in natural refrigerant-based technology. Next year, the discussion will also focus on HFC phase-down in Australia and New Zealand.
After a great success at the TAFE NSW Training center and a high demand from the participants, training initiatives on natural refrigerants will be discussed between prominent HVAC&R associations and training experts.
ATMOsphere China is born!
shecco is delighted to bring its flagship event platform ATMOsphere to China in 2018!
The first-ever ATMOsphere China conference will be held in Beijing on 11-12 April 2018, corresponding with China Refrigeration (9-11 April), the largest refrigeration technology exhibition in the Asia-Pacific region.
Truly a bridge for Chinese businesses and the global market for natural refrigerants, ATMOsphere China will be simultaneously translated in English and Chinese.
We are excited to work with Chinese government and leading HVAC&R associations as well as some of the most advanced international and domestic manufacturers of systems and components based on natural refrigerants.
ATMOsphere China will serve as the platform to discuss about opportunities for natural refrigerants in China bringing both global and local end users to share their experiences and best practices with natural refrigerants. Representatives from Chinese Ministries will stir up a discussion together with local associations and regulatory bodies around global policy developments, thus informing and influencing key decision makers.
After the Kigali Amendment, a key moment for the HVAC&R sector, China has already started its phase-down strategies and it is moving towards natural refrigerants. This year, China has started its environmentally-friendly transition by phasing out R22 and chosing hydrocarbons as a refrigerant for air-conditioning. Ammonia and CO2 have started to penetrate the Chinese market as well and this can already be seen in many industrial refrigeration systems.
ATMO China 2018 will focus on light commercial, commercial and industrial refrigeration as well as heat pumps. We welcome the global industry that recognises China to be the key manufacturing hub as well as emerging exporter of natural refrigerant-based technologies to join us on 12 April to discuss the future of the industry.
• Learn about natural cooling & heating solutions and reduce your energy bill
• Meet & connect with leading retailers, industrial end users, consumer goods brands, suppliers, policy makers, associations & more
• Take part in dynamic discussions and interactive panels
• Catch up on market updates and policy trends
• Expand your knowledge with technology case studies and Q&A sessions
• Site visit to METRO Beijing with CO2 transcritical system on 13 April
ATMOsphere Network Montreal 2017
This event is organised on the side of the 29th Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol. It will focus on the potential of natural refrigerant technologies to fulfil the obligations of the Parties under the Kigali Amendment and share findings of a recent study prepared by Öko-Recherche for Greenpeace, which evaluated climate benefits of global HFC phase-out scenarios.
In addition, presentations by the Environmental Investigation Agency will take a close look at the role of standards and other elements vital for successful implementation of the Kigali Amendment. shecco will share the latest market data and trends related to natural refrigerant technologies across different regions.
The side event is targeted towards climate negotiators and industry representatives who are looking for technologically viable, safe and efficient alternatives to chemical refrigerants that have to be phased out in the near future.
About 29th MOP
From 20-24 November 2017, policy representatives from approximately 200 countries and various UN agencies, as well as interested industry and non-governmental representatives, are meeting in Montreal, Canada to discuss alternatives to Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) and high GWP HFCs.
No additional registation is required. We look forward to seeing you at our side event!
