The ATMOsphere Reivew Board has issued an official call for natural refrigerant technology case studies. Details about submission guidelines can be found below. The deadline for sending an abstract is Wednesday, April 1st 2015.Call for case studies – areas of application
HVAC&R applications such as:
- Commercial & light commercial refrigeration
- Industrial refrigeration
- Transport refrigeration
- Air conditioning (mobile & stationary)
- Heat pumps
- New areas of application
The ATMOsphere Review Board is now accepting innovative, natural refrigerant based technology case studies for presentation at the 4th annual ATMOsphere America, which will take place on 25 & 26 June 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia. Case study abstracts must be centered in North America or specifically state their relevance to the North American market.
Case studies should present completed or ongoing projects, best practices and lessons learned in the field of natural refrigerants (CO2, ammonia, hydrocarbons, air and water). They should provide and analyze real life results relating to the energy efficiency, cost benefits and reliability of an HVAC&R technology/project using one or multiple natural refrigerants.
Please note that purely commercial or product focused case studies will not be accepted.
Abstract submission criteria
Please also note that the information provided in the abstract will be used to publicly market your case study if it is chosen for ATMOsphere America 2015.
All abstract submissions must include reference to the following points:
- Sustainable: The case study should address the potential of natural refrigerant technology
- Replicable: Lessons learned that could be applied to other projects in North America
- Original: Technology innovations, research results that have not been shown elsewhere, new fields of application, etc.
- Tangible: Examples of real life installations and/or demonstration projects, laboratory testing with tangible results, etc.
- 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
Please be sure to respect the specific abstract submission guidelines below or your case study may not be considered.
The following details must be included in the abstract:
- Your full name, organization and email address (please also include these details for the author and presenter if they are different)
- Case study title
- An abstract (paragraph of at least 5 sentences)
- Relevance to the North American market
Presenters should plan for 12 minutes presentation time + 3 minutes for Q&A. A draft presentation in keynote or power point will need to be submitted at least two weeks prior to the event (10 June 2015).
All case study presenters are entitled to a 50% discounted speaker rate for ATMOsphere America 2015. You will not be able to register using this category until you receive an official confirmation that your case study has been selected.
Please submit your case study abstract via email to info@ATMO.org indicating “ATMOsphere America 2015” in the subject line and in the case study itself.
The deadline for submitting a case study abstract is Wednesday, 01 April 2015.
