ST. LOUIS — Emerson committed its support for the second year of World Refrigeration Day on June 26. World Refrigeration Day is an international event that raises visibility, awareness, and understanding of the significant role that the refrigeration, air-conditioning, and heat pump (RACP) sector plays in modern life and society.

The theme for the second year of this event is “Cold Chain 4 Life.” This year’s campaign aims to make the public, policy makers, and end-users aware of technology, food waste/loss, human health and comfort, environment, and energy considerations associated with the cold chain. The goal is to motivate adoption of best practices to minimize food waste/loss in the supply chain, stimulate wise technology selections, and enhance operations to minimize leakage of refrigerants and maximize energy efficiency.

As part of its celebration, Emerson will host a live trivia event on its Copeland Facebook page at 2 p.m. EDT / 11 a.m. PDT that day (June 26). Participants will have the chance to win Emerson items including genuine Copeland brand t-shirts and a $100® gift card for the grand-prize winner, by answering questions related to the commercial refrigeration and air conditioning industry, company history, and product knowledge.

“Emerson continues to be committed to advancing innovation in the HVACR industry,” said Dr. Rajan Rajendran, vice president, system innovation center and sustainability for Emerson. “With World Refrigeration Day, we aim not only to showcase that commitment, but to also advance dialogue in the industry about how we can all achieve this goal. We are actively engaged with leaders in the refrigeration and air conditioning industries to address the many challenges the industry is facing — including evolving environment-related regulations, climate change awareness, human health and comfort, the growing ubiquity of digital technologies, food safety and quality needs, and the never-ending energy efficiency and operating cost concerns.
