Brussels, 6 September 2018 – The second annual ATMOsphere Ibérica is returning to Madrid, Spain on 18 September 2018 to serve as the country’s leading platform for sustainable solutions in the HVAC&R industry once more.
ATMO Ibérica participants will discuss the use of efficient and future-proof natural refrigerants CO2, ammonia and hydrocarbons in commercial and industrial applications in Spain and Portugal. Conference sessions will include regulatory updates and standards, market trends, training and technology case studies. All sessions will be centered on the Spanish and Portuguese markets and the event will be held exclusively in Spanish.
ATMO Ibérica will be particularly informative for supermarket chains and industrial end users, which have to comply with a ban on using HFCs with a GWP of over 150 in commercial applications, which takes effect under the EU F-Gas Regulation on 1 January 2022. It is estimated that only 2% of commercial refrigeration facilities currently meet the standards required by the directive in Spain. The event will therefore serve as an opportunity for end users looking to future-proof their businesses with natural refrigerants to gain knowledge and experience of such technologies.
One of the highlights of the programme is the policy session, where the European Commission, the Spanish Office of Climate Change, the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) and the Spanish NGO Ecology and Development Foundation (ECODES) will cover the latest advances in regulatory issues as well as subsidy plans to implement new commercial refrigeration installations based on alternative technologies to HFCs.
Currently, there are over 50 organisations registered for the conference and more than 160 attendees are expected.
ATMOsphere Ibérica 2018 is being supported by sponsors Eurofred, CAREL, Güntner, LU-VE, Arneg, Huayi Compressor Barcelona, Group K Refrigeration, Frost-Trol, EPTA, Advansor, Exkal and Carrier, along with partners Instituto de Ingeniería Energética, AEFYT, Caloryfrio.com and Refrigeration Industry.
