Tokyo, Japan (September 16, 2019) – Returning to Bangkok, Thailand for the second time, ATMOsphere Asia 2019 is set to highlight the ongoing developments and key challenges and opportunities for natural refrigerants in Southeast Asia.
While pressure continues to increase on the global cooling industry to phase down HFCs, now is the right time for Southeast Asia to leapfrog HFCs and transition directly to natural refrigerants according to Jan Dusek, managing director, shecco Japan and APAC business development manager.
“From a global perspective, now is the opportune time for the [Southeast Asian] industry to take advantage of the chance to leapfrog HFCs and adopt natural refrigerant technology,” said Dusek.
ATMOsphere Asia will be returning to Bangkok, Thailand for the second time following the conference’s debut in the region in 2017. The conference will be held on September 25 in Bangkok, at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC) where Bangkok RHVAC 2019 is taking place.
In a new panel this year titled “Innovative Refrigeration Solutions,” several leading domestic technology suppliers such as Sanden Intercool Commercial Refrigeration and The Cool will be joining leading regional end users and other international suppliers such as Philippines based Frabelle Cold Storage Corporation, Royal Duty Free Shops, Cold Front Technologies Asia, and Brazil-based Embraco to discuss case studies from a technical and first-hand end users’ perspective.
The conference will also feature a compelling policy session with representatives from Thailand’s Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning (ONEP) and Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) joining representatives from UN agencies and GIZ to discuss the latest policy developments regarding natural refrigerant use in the region.
“I think they are beginning to see this sector as an area that has immense value potential considering their goals are to find ways to stimulate and support economic growth while also minimizing CO2 emissions,” said Dusek regarding the participation of Thailand’s major policy stakeholders. “Natural refrigerants offer the perfect solution in this way.”
In addition, as an official ATMOsphere Asia side event, German OEM TEKO announced that it will be holding its first CO2 training session for Thai industry stakeholders on September 23 at the Novotel Bangkok Sukhumvit 20 hotel.
