Ignacio Gavilan, Director of our environmental sustainability work recently attended the ARA seminar on Refrigeration and Air Conditioning (HVACR) held on Tuesday 5th April.
Ignacio’s presence was widely regarded by attending stakeholders and his presentation on the CGF’s commitment to work with members to phase out High GWP synthetic refrigerants was well received. Ignacio highlighted the commitment of CGF members worldwide to use natural refrigerants and the progress being made through cooperation among major refrigeration suppliers and users. He emphasised the need for training, education and collaboration among suppliers, users and government to enable the benefits of natural refrigerant-based technology to be more rapidly adopted.
The day ended with a workshop that involved the entire group and confirmed the high interest in greater use of natural refrigerant based technologies and energy management systems. ARA President Tim Edwards and Ignacio called on the group to recognise greater collaboration is required to cause faster adoption of energy efficient, low emissions technology.
The result was consensus among the delegates and speakers that the opportunity for dramatic improvement in energy efficiency is available but much more needs to be done by industry and government to accelerate HVACR innovation for energy efficiency.
