MILANO – Eng. Marco Buoni, Director of Centro Studi Galileo and Vice-President International Affairs of AREA, proudly extends an invitation to the 17th European Conference hosted by the Polytechnic University of Milan in June.
#EUconfRAC – The 17th European Conference will be held in the Polytechnic University of Milan on the 9th-10th June 2017. All the major experts from UNEP, UNIDO, EU Commission, IIR, ASHRAE, AHRI, EPEE, ASERCOM, and AREA will gather to speak about the future of Air Conditioning and Refrigeration.
In consideration of the ratification of the Kigali Amendment of the Montreal Protocol, the 17th European Conference on the Latest Technology in the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Industry takes on even greater importance, with particular reference to new refrigerants and new European and international regulations. In this regard, through the participation of Dr. Arno Kaschl, European Commission DG Clima, the event will deliver the latest and most relevant official legislation and guidelines concerning alternative refrigerants, not only in the EU but worldwide.
The international Congress organised by Centro Studi Galileo was introduced during the “Strengthening HVAC-R in Europe: Building the Future Together Conference”, hosted by İZKA and held in the Turkish city of İzmir on the 21st-22nd April. A large number of participants from all over the world discussed the future of the sector within the scope of “Adding Value to the Future”, which aims to improve cooperation and knowledge sharing between the two refrigeration clusters operating in the same sector in Turkey and Italy.
The 17th European Conference will take place on the 9th and 10th June 2017 under the Auspices of the Italian Presidency of the Council of the Ministers and furthermore welcomes the participation of global leading researchers and experts in the sector, as well as the Presidents of world-leading organisations. The event is jointly organised by the United Nations (UNEP), the International Institute of Refrigeration of Paris (IIR), the Italian Association of Refrigeration Technicians (ATF), Centro Studi Galileo (CSG) and the European Energy Centre (EEC-ECT).
Following 40 years of leading presence in the sector of refrigeration, air conditioning and renewable energy, Centro Studi Galileo and the Italian Association of Refrigeration Technicians (ATF) have been deeply involved in helping both developed and developing Countries to improve their standards of living conditions. Since 2005, Centro Studi Galileo has also closely cooperated with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) for sharing knowledge globally and for the purpose of educating and training technicians by conducting training courses, publications and conferences.

The upcoming 17th European Conference will proudly welcome Presidents and delegates coming from 21 countries and four continents, who will discuss and debate the rules and regulations to control emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-Gases) and the rising opportunities given by the latest eco-friendly alternative refrigerants.
Starting at 9am on Friday 9th June, the first session of the conference will focus on natural refrigerant gases such as hydrocarbons and CO2 and the latest synthetic gases, for example hydro-fluoro-olefin (HFO), in addition to discussions about the growing necessity for energy efficiency. The second session will be dedicated to the most recent developments in components and plants in relation to modern fluids, as well as vital energy and environmental issues.
The congress will resume on Saturday 10th June with talks on the need for a common global framework for legislation and certification, which is considered essential to supervise current plants and reduce emissions of gases, and the importance of safety while handling flammable (low A2L or high A3) refrigerants, or components and systems where they are confined. The fourth session will additionally focus on the current technologies within the cold chain for food preservation, conservation and transport.
The fifth and final session of the summit, which is held in cooperation with the University of Genoa and the European Energy Centre (EEC) of Edinburgh, will concern innovative technologies such as refrigeration through renewable energy, heat pumps using CO2, district heating, absorption cooling systems and magnetic refrigeration.
