BTGA founds the "Cooling Technology"

Within the framework of an information event, the BTGA - German Association of Technical Building Equipment (EIS) now set up its "Cooling Technology" department. The chairman of the new BTGA department is Dipl.-Ing. Jörn Stiegelmeier, Head of Technology & Development at ENGIE Refrigeration GmbH. Already 18 member companies of the BTGA organization have declared that they will actively contribute to the department "cooling technology". The company was founded in the offices of the "Industrieverband Technische Gebäudeausrüstung" and "Umwelttechnik Hessen eV" in Frankfurt am Main. The BTGA, with its "Cold Technology" division, is providing the BTGA organization's member companies operating in the refrigeration sector with a new platform that will deal with topics such as standardization, refrigeration and energy saving, and will initiate and support research projects. The Federal Industrial Association thus takes account of the increasing demands and the ever-increasing importance of refrigeration technology within the technical building equipment sector. "The BTGA sees itself as an addition to the existing association landscape," said BTGA chief executive Günther Mertz. "We are addressing the larger companies, which do not regard the refrigeration technology in isolation, but as part of an increasingly complex building technology. Together with them, we want to intensify our contact with planners and industry. " The program of the information event was determined by lectures and discussions on current cold-policy topics: The participants were presented the new BTGA rule 3.003 "Closed water-borne cold and cooling water circuits - reliable operation under water technical aspects" and current research projects in the field of "cooling technology". Claus Hoffmann, Head of Unit Unit 525 - Cooling Technology, Energy Efficiency Communities at the Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control (BAFA), informed about the possibilities to promote measures for refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. In addition, Andrea Voigt, EPEE Director General, spoke on the European F-Gases Regulation and the Chemicals and Climate Protection Ordinance.   Read More
