Free morning event promises to tackle issues from refrigerant choice to recycling, as Daikin joins sponsor roster
The annual RAC F-Gas Question Time is shaping up to be one of the biggest debates in its history, and a must-attend event as experts from across the supply chain seek to help the industry navigate its way through the latest F-Gas issues.
Air conditioning giant Daikin has become the latest to sign up as sponsor, joining fellow sponsor Honeywell and headline sponsor Chemours in backing the event. Daikin will be presenting its view on recycling and reclamation - a crucial element in the industry meeting the steadily reducing HFC quotas.
Other items high on the agenda will be progress towards lower-GWP refrigerants in light of upcoming bans and stricter quotas - and the consequent availability and price issues that are arising.
Another vital topic will be the need for training in the new mildly flammable gases - HFO blends and R32 -, which has rapidly become a matter of concern for those working with engineers - currently there is no formal requirement for practical hands-on training in flammables in F-Gas qualifications.
Naturally, making informed refrigerant choices for the future will be an important focus and the refrigerant manufacturers will be presenting on this topic.
Experts in attendance will include policy specialist Ray Gluckman, Brian Churchyard from retailer Asda, Adrian Crowther of the Co-operative Group and speakers from Chemours, Honeywell and Daikin. For the British Refrigeration Association, vice president Mark Woods of Space Engineering will bring an industry perspective.
The event will take place at the new venue of the Crowne Plaza London Kensington between 9am and 1pm on Thursday, May 17, followed by a buffet lunch.
