Leading global HVAC&R Associations and Agencies of the United Nations will be Presidents of the 18th European Conference, 6-7 June 2019, Milan: under the Auspices of the Ministry for the Environment.

For the first time the 18th European Conference, proudly held by Centro Studi Galileo in cooperation with UN Environment and the International Institute of Refrigeration headquartered in Paris, will be part of the brand new HVAC&R Week, together with Eureka 2019.
Centro Studi Galileo will dedicate seven days in June to refrigeration and air conditioning, joining European countries in the search for advanced technologies and solutions to tackle climate change; while focused on supporting the United Nations in reaching the renowned 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Milan and Bruges will be united, from 6-7 June until 11-12 June respectively, in this aim by four of Europe’s most active Associations - AREA, ATF, EPEE and EVIA - who will create a unique, fully fledged learning and exchange opportunity for the HVAC&R sector.

One of the most renowned conferences of the RACHP sector has now reached its 18th edition. Centro Studi Galileo’s European Conference, which is held biennially in cooperation with UN Environment (UNEP) and the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIF-IIR) headquartered in Paris, presents once more the leading contribution of the EU Commission FAO and UNIDO and features the customary speeches and presidency by major Associations and experts worldwide; such as the American AHRI and ASHRAE and the European AREA, SERCOM, EPEE and Eurovent. The Conference will also welcome contributions from the Japan Society of Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (JSRAE) and the Chinese Association of Refrigeration (CAR).

Three months from the entry into force of the Kigali Amendment and three months away from the starting date of the Conference, Centro Studi Galileo is proud and delighted to confirm the participation of major global experts in the fields of refrigeration and air conditioning.

This traditional symposium will be held in the prestigious venue of the Polytechnic University of Milan on 6-7 June 2019 and will be under the Auspices of the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea Protection.

In this pivotal moment of change and adaptation of the RAC sector, the Conference will be an opportunity to engage in relevant, topical debate. The participants will deepen their knowledge of the latest technology available on the market thanks to demonstrations and scientific presentations by the Presidents of major Associations worldwide, together with industry representatives.

The focus of the debate will be climate change and concerning technologies to fight its effects; together with renewable energy, training and certification, regulatory standards and safety. After the introduction by UNEP and IIF-IIR, the first session will focus on energy efficiency, new low GWP refrigerants (e.g. new HFC, R32, HFO-1234yf/ze/za, HFO mixtures, CO2, ammonia, hydrocarbons) and their developments, perspectives and forecasts in light of EU Regulation 517/2014, while simultaneously providing in-depth analysis and updates on the Regulation itself.
The main industries of the RACHP sector (who’re also partners that collaborate with the activity of Centro Studi Galileo) will present their latest technological solutions in the afternoon of Thursday 6th June, with overviews of new components and plants that deal with new and alternative refrigerants, tackling the challenge of environmental protection.
The Conference will continue on its second day on Friday 7th June, which will be opened by a session dedicated to F-Gas Regulation 517/2014 and concerning European and international certifications and licenses, shedding light on the Phase Down situation worldwide. With the news of European Union’s signature in October 2018, we can count already 52 countries who have ratified the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol so far. This allowed the Amendment to enter into force on 1st January this year.
The fourth session will follow, featuring interesting and up-to-date debate on new control technologies and the cold chain, cold storages and transport; including discussion of food conservation, with relevant contribution from the Food and Agriculture Organization.
Prior to the conclusions, undertaken by UNEP and IIF-IIR, the 18th European Conference will welcome a final, fifth session focused on new efficient and renewable cooling, featuring technologies such as evaporative, district and magnetic cooling.
