  • DryF: Conference

    Tuesday, July 6, 2021 10:00 AM - 1:30 PM CEST This online conference will showcase the exciting results from the flagship project DryFiciency from lab to reality. DryFiciency focuses on high temperature heat pumps that are able to supply process heat up to 160 °C. Three demonstrations in industrial drying have been advanced to foster competitiveness, improve security of energy supply and promote sustainable production in Europe by focusing on the application of heat pump in industrial drying and dehydration processes of the agricultural, ceramic and bio sludge industry. The benefits of reusing waste energy in industrial processes will be highlighted, stressing its benefit and impact on the competitiveness of European industry. Together with leading expert speakers from policy, energy integration, manufacturing and end users, this interactive conference will showcase the results achieved and the potential of the available solutions, demonstrating how high temperature heat pumps can help making industry and its energy supply more robust for reaching climate neutrality by 2050.

  • Daikin: Refrigerants News

    The illegal trade of refrigerants does not only undermine the aim of the F-Gas Regulation to reduce HFCs, it also harbors safety risks. The EU F-gas regulation is gradually reducing the amount of certain refrigerants available, thus leading to a price increase for these refrigerants. This fosters illegal imports into the EU, and HFCs are also affected by this. While law-abiding manufacturers and importers are subject to the quota system, organized crime profits from it, especially since the penalties so far have been low.

  • EPA: HFCs

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is proposing its first rule under the American Innovation and Manufacturing (AIM) Act of 2020 to phase down the production and consumption of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), highly potent greenhouse gases commonly used in refrigerators, air conditioners, and many other applications. The AIM Act directs EPA to sharply reduce production and consumption of these harmful pollutants by using an allowance allocation and trading program. This phasedown will decrease the production and import of HFCs in the United States by 85% over the next 15 years. A global HFC phasedown is expected to avoid up to 0.5 °C of global warming by 2100.
