The Sustainable Innovation in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning network, led by the IOR and London South Bank University has launched a series of network events.
The events are lined up at retail display manufacturer, Epta, and at refrigerant recycler, Harp International Limited.
The event at Epta will be held on 20th September at the Epta-George Barker facilities in Bradford. The event at Harp will be on November 21st at the Harp site in Pontypridd, Wales.
As usual the events will be a combination of short punchy presentations, a period for facilitated discussion and the always popular tour around the host’s facilities.
The event at Epta will concentrate on the latest developments in retail display. The agenda for the day has just been published on the SIRAC web site (www.sirac.org.uk) and bookings are now being taken.
Numbers for the event are limited and so bookings are on a first come first serve basis. Anticipated highlights are information on the latest developments at Epta from John Austin-Davies; an update on CO2 training initiatives from John Sheehan; information on what may well be the future of manufacturing – remanufacturing from Dan Bibalou representing Bond Retail Display and finally Guy Hundy poses the question is a System Efficiency Index a better measurement of efficiency than COP?
Carole Bond will run the networking session exploring topics around sustainability and making change happen. A fully packed day will include time to network and discuss the latest developments and conclude with a tour of the Epta facilities.
SIRAC is now operating as a self funding group and participants are asked for a small contribution of £30 towards the network’s operating costs when booking for an event to ensure that it remains sustainable.
Companies can become a corporate member of SIRAC for just £100/year which entitles them to free attendance for 2 people at each SIRAC event (there are 4 events per year), regular updates such as newsletters, technology reviews and also priority invitations to network meetings.
Previous SIRAC events were funded by a grant from the epsrc (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council).
