ATMOsphere Europe

ATMOsphere is an international venue for informing on the latest trends and developments in the field of natural refrigerants. Its aim is to promote the topic worldwide.

The 8th ATMOSphere conference was held for the first time in Germany, in Berlin, from 25-27 September 2017 and, with 428 delegates from 238 organisations and businesses, was the largest ATMOsphere conference to date.

Participants at the three-day conference included eminent experts from industry and commerce, as well as politicians and representatives of scientific communities, associations and institutions.

Efficient Energy gave a total of three presentations on the eChiller and the topic of Water as a refrigerant:

  • on 25th  September as guest speaker at a roundtable meeting at the German provider of international cooperation services, GIZ – Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit;
  • on 26th September, Dr. Süß gave a presenation on the “Use of Natural Refrigerants at Data Centres” to almost all of the 428 delegates; the paper focussed on trends in the data-centre field and how eChiller and natural refrigerants can contribute towards energy savings; and
  • despite parallel sessions on 26th  September, around 150 delegates eagerly attended a further lecture by Dr. Süß on the topic of “Industrial Cooling Employing the Natural Refrigerant Water Using the Example of the Plastics Industry”; the presented case study centred on the operating principles and benefits of the eChiller based on the application of garden toolmaker Gardena.

The lectures were followed by a large number of talks with interested parties at Efficient Energy’s own stand.

The interest in this event shows that future refrigeration technology will increasingly use natural refrigerants with little atmospheric-warming potential. With its energy efficient and CO2-friendly technology, the eChiller is the right product at the right place at the right time.
