The Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES) will host a “Natural Refrigerants Seminar, With a Focus on Carbon Dioxide,” on June 4, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Pastime Athletic Club in Syracuse, N.Y.

Instructor Svend Bennedsen is a senior application engineer and laboratory manager at Danfoss Inc., Baltimore. During the last 10 years, he has been involved in several carbon dioxide (CO2) application projects, and particularly the last three years in hydrocarbon application projects.
