About ATMOsphere Network Paris

The ATMOsphere Network Paris aims to inform international climate negotiators about the availability, efficiency and safety of natural refrigerant solutions in developed and developing countries. The event will feature a panel discussion providing an industry and policy perspective on market trends and policy updates, as well as real-life examples of technologies using natural refrigerants (CO2, NH3, hydrocarbons, air and water). It will also include an update on the conversion of a production line for residential AC to hydrocarbons in China by a representative of Chinese Foreign Economic Cooperation Office (FECO).
