globalFACT Brings Refrigeration Experts Together in Quito

Date: 06 November 2018

As world leaders and diplomats gather in Quito, Ecuador for the 30th Meeting of the Parties (MOP 30) to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, the Global Forum for Advanced Climate Technologies (globalFACT) is hosting a panel of experts from across the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration (HVACR) sphere to provide insight into the broad range of solutions available to meet environmental regulatory goals. The panel, a side event to the MOP 30, is taking place on Tuesday, November 6, and is entitled: Challenges and Opportunities in Refrigerant Transition.

“globalFACT strongly supports the goals of the meeting. We recognize the important role the HVACR industry plays in helping protect the environment on a global scale,” said Jordan Smith, globalFACT Executive Director.

globalFACT’s experts panel will offer a diverse set of perspectives on the decisions being made across the globe to move toward lower-GWP refrigerants.

Speakers are:

  • Kevin Fay, Executive Director, The Alliance for Responsible Atmospheric Policy
  • Greg Picker, Executive Director, Refrigerants Australia
  • Mark Stanga, President, Competition Advocates, on behalf of Daikin Industries, Ltd.
  • Mike Thompson, Global Director of Refrigerant Applications, Ingersoll Rand

“globalFACT’s mission is to help foster an understanding of all of the lower-GWP options available as end-users move to more environmentally-sustainable products and practices,” noted Smith. “There are options that can work for everyone and that can help remove transition to technologies that are better for the environment.”

Launched in September, globalFACT has released a white paper, “Selecting the Right Refrigerant for Commercial Refrigeration: Achieving High Performance While Reducing Environmental Impact,” which aids in the decision-making process when choosing alternative refrigerants in commercial refrigeration equipment. The group also unveiled a cost calculator that calculates the electricity costs and total emissions based on characteristics of a commercial refrigeration system.
