Participants gathered in Chicago for the biggest ever ATMOsphere America are hearing how competition between CO<sub>2</sub>, hydrocarbons and ammonia is creating exciting new opportunities and driving increased uptake of natural refrigerant-based technologies in the United States.

This year's ATMOsphere America held at the Westin Michigan Avenue on June 16-17 – is the biggest ever, attracting 340 participants from over 140 companies.

As natural refrigerant solutions become more popular in the United States, participants in the event are hearing how there is increasing competition between different natural refrigerant-based technologies – whether R744, hydrocarbons or ammonia – for commercial and industrial refrigeration.
Indeed, the boundaries between solutions typically applied in either commercial or industrial refrigeration are dissipating – with low-charge ammonia or NH<sub>3</sub>/CO<sub>2</sub> cascade solutions entering the commercial refrigeration sector, and CO<sub>2</sub> transcritical being applied in industrial refrigeration applications.
