DALLAS — Danfoss held its annual press briefing at the AHR Expo.

Danfoss North America president John Galyen opened the briefing with a broad overview of the company’s position on new refrigerants, energy productivity, and specific technology investments.

“Danfoss is well positioned to meet the needs of the growing climate and energy sector, and provide technologies to increase energy productivity and reduce CO2 emissions that impact our climate,” he remarked.

Galyen also spoke about Danfoss’ proven global track record with natural refrigerants like ammonia, hydrocarbons, and CO2, which includes over 4,000 Danfoss CO2 projects worldwide.

Robert Wilkins, vice president, public affairs, commented on the U.S. policy outlook for 2013, and explained that there are no major climate or energy bills expected to pass the 113th Congress — leaving the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Department of Energy (DOE), and the states to address energy efficiency and refrigerant issues.

Additional speakers from Danfoss included Lisa Tryson, director of corporate communications and public relations, who provided a review of the 2012 EnVisioneering Symposia series and a preview of what is to come in 2013, and Hans Ole Matthiesen, global marketing director of refrigeration, who provided an overview of CO2 as a climate solution and introduced the full portfolio of products, integrated solutions, expertise, and research Danfoss is bringing to the market.
