Tokyo, Japan, 16 October 2017: shecco is delighted to announce the debut of its flagship event platform ATMOsphere in China in 2018.
The event will be held on 12 April 2018 in Beijing, China, immediately following China Refrigeration 2018, the largest refrigeration technology exhibition in the Asia-Pacific, which is also taking place in Beijing on 9-11 April 2018.
“We are excited to work with the Chinese government and leading HVAC&R associations as well as some of the most advanced international and domestic manufacturers of systems and components based on natural refrigerants,” said shecco Asia Pacific Business Development Manager and shecco Japan Managing Director Jan Dusek.
ATMOsphere China 2018 will serve as the platform to discuss opportunities for natural refrigerants (natrefs) in China, with a focus on light commercial, commercial and industrial refrigeration as well as heat pumps.
Market and policy developments in China show growing momentum
The Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection and its Foreign Economic Cooperation Office has endorsed natrefs in the majority of refrigeration and air-conditioning sectors.
This year, China has begun phasing out R22 and chose hydrocarbons as a refrigerant for air-conditioning.
Leadership from the Chinese government has also spurred further investments in natref technology.
In the industrial sector, there are now more than 150 NH3-CO2 projects and over 40 CO2 subcritical projects in the retail sector.
China’s first transcritical CO2 system will be installed in a Metro Wholesale store by the end of this year. Several other suppliers are also working on CO2 transcritical solutions for the Chinese retail sector.
Rapid growth is expected in the heating sector as well with 800+ CO2 commercial heat pump water heaters already installed throughout China.
“The global industry is taking notice of the recent developments in the Chinese HVAC&R industry,” said Dusek.
“We welcome the global industry that recognises China as the key manufacturing hub as well as an emerging exporter of natural refrigerant-based technologies to join us on 12 April to discuss the future of the HVAC&R industry.”
The conference will be simultaneously translated into English and Chinese, ensuring that the event serves as a bridge between Chinese businesses and the global market for natural refrigerants.
A call for natural refrigerant technology-based case studies will be issued soon.
