On May 3rd, the North American Sustainable Refrigeration Council (NASRC) in Boise, Idaho will offer a free, full-day overview of natural refrigerants hosted by the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).
Attendees will hear about the many refrigerant-related challenges the food retail industry faces and how to avoid them. The workshop will also cover how natural can refrigerants can offer end users a competitive advantage over others.
The day will be split into two sessions. The morning session will give an overview of future government regulations and policies related to current refrigerant choices. In the afternoon, attendees can choose one of two tracks:
Track 1: Deep Dive on Natural Refrigerant Systems
- CO2 transcritical, ammonia, and propane systems
- How to optimize design, installation, operations, and maintenance of these systems
Track 2: Solutions for Smaller Food Retail Formats
- CO2 condensing units and propane self-contained systems
- Service tech availability, codes and standards, and return on investment (ROI) for natural refrigerants
Workshop attendees will hear from experts on refrigerant regulations and policy, as well as leading engineering and manufacturing firms specializing in CO2, ammonia, and propane technologies.
This event is ideal for food retailers from large chains to small independents and convenience stores. Light refreshments and lunch will be provided, sponsored by Kysor Warren. A networking social sponsored by DC Engineering and Danfoss will follow the workshop.
