Refrigerant Week 2019 starts today

Monday, 16 September, 2019

Here's how to get involved

We couldn't be more excited to announce the start of our third Refrigerant Week—with tools, events, and resources to help you get ready for refrigerant change.

In recent years, legislation around refrigerants has shifted significantly, affecting prices and availability all over the world. And the move to low-GWP (global warming potential) alternatives has only just begun.

Throughout the industry, people are dealing with unprecedented change. So, in 2017, we started Refrigerant Week.

It's our way of bringing together the best and brightest minds in refrigeration to help installers, resellers, wholesalers, operators, and OEM engineers handle the accelerating pace of refrigerant transition through a packed program of webinars, podcasts, and local training events. And you're invited to join us.

An international program of webinars

We'll have 11 live webinars to choose from—in a variety of time zones and languages—to give you the latest insights into subjects such as:

  • Global trends and drivers - for cold chain technology, and refrigerants and regulations
  • Handling A2L and A3 flammable refrigerants - including charging procedures and service routines
  • Transitioning to new refrigerants and technologies - with everything installers need to know about new refrigerant technologies, and moving away from R404A
  • Benefiting from lower-GWP refrigerants - by rethinking system design and comparing industrial refrigeration efficiency
  • Using CO₂ - including large industrial transcritical systems and system optimization
  • Looking to the future - so you're ready for changes all the way to 2030

And while the webinars will be broadcast in English, many will also be available in German, Polish, Ukrainian, Romanian, Turkish, Italian, French, Spanish, and Czech.

Industry speakers and interactive activities
