Prize Offered for Refrigerants Dissertation

Eurammon - a joint European initiative of companies, individuals, and institutions who advocate natural refrigerants - is calling for entries for the Natural Refrigeration Award which will be presented to the best scientific dissertation in the field of natural refrigerants.

The initiative is being done in conjunction with their technical faculty of Rijeka University in Croatia and the Russian trade magazine Refrigeration Business to award the prize of $7,200 (5,000 euros).

Eurammon is also inviting the winners to present the dissertations to an international audience during the award ceremony in  fall 2011. The deadline for submitting an application is June 30, 2011.

For the first time, Eurammon is also associating its activities of the Natural Refrigeration Award on Facebook and offers international participants an opportunity for networking with each other.

“With the Natural Refrigeration Award, we want to support young scientists and give an international incentive for further research work into refrigeration with natural refrigerants,” said Eurammon chair Monika Witt. “In the context of the current climate debate, the aim must be to make refrigeration more sustainable and promote the use of natural refrigerants. Natural refrigerants are not only environmentally friendly but also energy-efficient and will therefore assume a more significant role in the future.”

The award is open to all graduates from universities, colleges, and similar educational institutions whose scientific work has been acknowledged as a bachelor’s/master’s dissertation or comparable qualification. The dissertation must be devoted to the issue of refrigeration with natural refrigerants, such as ammonia, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons, or water. The submission must consist of an English abstract, the completed application form, and the dissertation. An international jury made up of representatives from science, business, and the media will decide on the winning entry. The prizes will be awarded during the autumn of 2011.

Since 2005, the Natural Refrigeration Award has been presented by Eurammon every two years.
