Beijing, 10 April 2018: The ATMOsphere China conference on natural refrigerants, to be held in the capital Beijing, kicks off tomorrow in the Sheraton Grand Beijing Dongcheng Hotel.
In response to increased market interest in natural refrigerants, ATMOsphere China, the first Chinese edition of shecco’s global conference series ATMOsphere, takes place on 11-12 April following China Refrigeration 2018, the largest refrigeration technology exhibition in the Asia Pacific, which is also taking place in Beijing (9-11 April 2018).
The conference, which will be simultaneously translated into English and Chinese, serves as a bridge between Chinese businesses and the global market for natural refrigerants.
One of the sessions that builds this bridge is the Technology Leadership Round Table, when some of the world’s biggest international suppliers will take to the stage to share some of the obstacles they’ve faced in China and to discuss their future plans and opportunities in this vast market.
ATMO China will also delve deeper into the state of the Chinese HVAC&R market, which is currently in a transitional stage after the global agreement reached to phase down HFCs under the Montreal Protocol.
Another notable session of the conference is the Future of the Industry End User Panel with leading brands METRO China, Shandong Meijia Group, Nestlé Health Science and SPAR Beijing Huaguan.
Conference presentations will showcase the value of leapfrogging from HCFCs to natural refrigerants in response to the global phasedown. The Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection and its Foreign Economic Cooperation Office (FECO) will be presenting the latest updates on regulatory issues related to natural refrigerants in China during the Policy Session. The International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR), International Environment Agency (IEA) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) will offer a more international angle on the topic.
In addition, presentations from HVAC&R associations and technology suppliers underscore the event’s importance as a milestone showcasing China’s accelerating transition towards the use of natural refrigerants.
The event will conclude on 13 April with a site visit to the Chinese retail sector’s first transcritical CO2 system, installed in METRO China’s Beijing Lishuiqiao wholesale store.
