Luvata at ATMOsphere Europe 2016 – Moving the CO2 equator southwards

(May 10, 2016) At the end of April, Luvata's Heat Transfer division attended the ATMOsphere Europe 2016 conference in Barcelona, Spain. It was the 7th annual conference on natural refrigerants for the HVAC&R industry, and this year's event was the biggest and most informative yet, with more than 70 speakers, 30 sponsors and a record number of retailers and experts from across the world offering insights into the market.

Each year the event has recorded an increasing interest in natural refrigerants. Technological innovations are now enabling CO2 trans-critical refrigeration systems to be adopted in southern European countries, overcoming the so-called "CO2 equator", the border defining the area where in the past, installations were both technically feasible and economically viable.

Luvata is one of the largest CO2 cooler manufacturers in the world, thanks to its research and development centres in southern Europe, where products of the future are developed and tested. It plays a fundamental role in the propagation of natural refrigerant technology in regions with hotter climates. Luvata's involvement in events like ATMOsphere is just part of its commitment to bringing new solutions to the market.

Luvata was a gold sponsor of the conference and was represented by a team of experts: Sales and Marketing Director Andrea Fumi, R&D Director Michele Bivi, Head of Heat Transfer Solutions EMEA Stefano Cassis and Global Product Manager for Commercial Coolers Umberto Di Barbora. During the two-day event the team presented many of Luvata's innovative solutions, generating considerable interest from the public, especially for Umberto Di Barbora's talk on green technologies and finding the optimum solution for every climate.

ATMOsphere Europe and similar events are important for companies to establish new business contacts, maintain industry leadership and to promote products, but are also key to building stronger partnerships between market professionals, enabling the whole business sector to benefit from the most advanced technologies and solutions.

At the end of May, Luvata will attend the Retail & Food Energy event in Milan, Italy. It is Italy's biggest event, designed for Energy Managers and Directors in the technical retail and food industry to discuss concrete and green solutions for energy efficiency.
