shecco Japan’s commitment to accelerating the market uptake of natural refrigerants in Japan has to date resulted in the organisation of three highly successful ATMOsphere network Tokyo meetings, and the first ever ATMOsphere Asia conference, attended by close to 200 people. All have featured in leading Japanese HVAC&R media, a sign of growing Japanese interest in shecco activities.
“One year on from its establishment shecco Japan has started to attract increasing press coverage for its activities, in particular for its Tokyo based ATMOsphere events. Through this established event concept, shecco Japan aims to fill an information gap regarding natural refrigerant markets in the world. Discussions surrounding the Japanese F-Gas regulation and national investment schemes for natural refrigerants are creating demand for accurate information from various stakeholders. We intend to work closely with both industry and mainstream media to help increase awareness of the viability of natural refrigerant technologies in Japan,” said shecco Japan’s Business Development Officer.

The ATMOsphere network Tokyo meetings have drawn between 50 and 120 stakeholders, interested in the latest market and policy developments in the field of natural refrigerants. Bringing together forward looking companies and Japanese policy-makers, the meetings have helped to raise awareness about the availability and energy efficiency of climate friendly technologies, attracting media attention.
In addition to featuring presentations on global trends in the use of natural refrigerants, the events provide a showcase for the latest CO2 and hydrocarbon technology, and a space of open discussion of current and planned legislation impacting the HVAC&R sector.
