ARNEG IS LOOKING TO THE FUTURE OF REFRIGERATION

Eng. Pierluigi Schiesaro - Research & Development Arneg Group together with Cooltech Applications Staff

In recent years various political, legislative, socio-economic and environmental factors, along with the demands of a market increasingly focussed on energy saving and cost reduction in refrigeration equipment, have prompted major evolution and transformation in the world of refrigeration.


If you consider that around 15% of global energy consumption comes from refrigeration, you can easily understand how this is one of the sectors that are most subjected to legislative provisions (European Eco-design, Energy Label, F-Gas Regulation and RAEE/WEEE End of Life Directives) all aimed at reducing the environmental impact of refrigeration equipment.


Proposed new European regulation on reducing high impact greenhouse gases particularly heralds major problems and uncertainties for the future of refrigerants. In answer to all this, in collaboration with COOLTECH Application (France), ARNEG is presenting a prototype display cabinet using the magnetocaloric effect for cooling in a global preview at Euroshop 2014.
