Brussels, 4 September 2017: Already dominant in the domestic refrigeration market in many parts of the world, hydrocarbons are also solidifying their place in the commercial and light commercial fields. This special edition of Accelerate Corporate – ‘Hydrocarbons – A New World Order’ – looks at how hydrocarbons are expanding into new business areas.
“Accelerate Corporate captures the efforts of market leaders in advancing the use of hydrocarbons across different applications, industry sectors, and continents. It showcases end users’ experiences working with natural refrigerants and highlights the underlying market, policy and technology trends driving their uptake,” said Andrew Williams, editor of ‘Hydrocarbons – A New World Order’.
Globally, hydrocarbons are already making their presence felt. The only household refrigeration markets that remain largely untouched by hydrocarbons, for example, are North America and Africa. Accelerate takes an in-depth look at these and other market trends in a special feature.
For hydrocarbons to make inroads into new areas of application, however, charge limits will need to be revised. This issue looks at how standards bodies in the United States and worldwide will consider increasing these limits amid mounting pressure from industry.
Embraco, a multinational company focused on refrigeration solutions, is banking on disruptive technologies to stay ahead of the pack. Accelerate sat down with CEO Luis Felipe Dau to find out how the company sees the position of hydrocarbons in the global HVAC&R market unfolding in the future.
A series of case studies from around the world provides a snapshot of how innovative solutions are helping end users in different sectors of the economy to make the switch to hydrocarbons.
From professional kitchens to medical laboratories, a growing number of markets are taking advantage of the efficiency and versatility of hydrocarbons. In Brazil, for example, Accelerate looks at how two innovative companies with close ties to that country – Embraco and Eletrofrio – are helping Mig supermarkets to adopt propane-based plug ‘n’ play cabinets.
