Seeking innovative technology case studies for European Market

[-] text [+]

ATMOsphere Europe 2015 is back and looking for the most innovative technology case studies to exhibit at its 6th event. The conference, which will take place from 16-17 March in Brussels, Belgium, is now accepting case studies focused on commercial, light commercial, industrial and transport refrigeration, as well as air conditioning, heat pumps and new areas of applications, in particular applications in the warmer climates of Southern Europe. The deadline for case study submissions is 15 December 2014.

For its 6th edition, ATMOsphere Europe 2015 is looking to showcase the most innovative natural refrigerant technology case studies based on a variety of HVAC&R applications. Joint presentations between manufacturers/contractors and end-users are welcome. Case study submissions must meet all of the following criteria. Special attention will be given to case studies centered on natural refrigerant applications in warm climates in Southern Europe. All case studies must be based in or applicable to the European market.

Deadline: 15 December 2014

Areas of Application
  • Commercial & Light-Commercial Refrigeration
  • Industrial Refrigeration
  • Air Conditioning (Mobile & Stationary)
  • Heat Pumps
  • Transport
  • New areas of application
Submission topics

The ATMOsphere Review Board is looking for case studies focused on HVAC&R product innovations, best practice and/or lessons learned in the field of natural refrigerant (CO2, ammonia, hydrocarbons, air and/or water) technology. The study must be a practical summary of a new or improved technology rather than a formal, rigorous research paper, proving and analysing real-life results relating to energy efficiency, cost effectiveness and reliability. Case studies must be centered in or applicable to the European market.

Submission criteria
  • Sustainable: The case study should address the potential of natural refrigerant technology (CO2, ammonia, hydrocarbons, water and air)
  • Replicable: Lessons learned that could be applied to other projects
  • Original: Technology innovations, research results that have not been shown elsewhere, new field of applications etc.
  • Tangible: Examples of real life installations and demonstration projects, laboratory testing with tangible results etc.
Important elements

Case studies with the following elements will be treated preferentially.
  • Efficiency analysis: analysis of how the refrigerant influences the Coefficient of Performance (COP), comparison of different systems or parameters, etc.
  • Cost analysis: energy costs, operational costs, planning and installation costs, life-cycle costs
  • Southern European Region: focus on efficient applications in warm climates will be given special attention
Formatting guidelines

Case study submissions will not be considered unless they include:
  • Author’s full name, organisation and email address
  • Case study title
  • Key words
  • A substantial abstract – please be aware that this is the abstract that will be used to announce the case study. It must be at within 3-5 paragraphs and state the main focus and key elements of the case study.
Submission deadline: 15 December 2014

Case studies and questions about submissions can be sent to

About ATMOsphere Europe 2015

ATMOsphere Europe 2015 returns for its sixth edition, once again bringing together leading HVAC&R industry experts to discuss the latest natural refrigerant technology innovations, market trends and regulatory issues. With the new EU F-Gas regulations scheduled to come into effect two months before the conference kicks off, ATMOsphere Europe 2015 will provide updates on the legislation and its implementation. Other key discussion topics include commercial, light commercial, industrial & transport refrigeration, heat pumps and air conditioning, as well as some new topics such as solutions for convenience stores, hotels, restaurants, cafes, hospitals, and more. The event will take place from 16-17 March at the Crowne Plaza Le Hotel in Brussels, Belgium.
