Cooling bodies agree co-operation over promotion of natural refrigerants


When did the word 'refrigeration' become such a dirty word? It seems that no one now mentions the 'r' word. It has been replaced by the 'C' word - cooling There is a drive to clean up 'cooling'. In this news item two bodies are referred to as cooling bodies. The RAC awards are the Cooling Industry Awards and have been for over a decade. Perhaps cooling and refrigeration are different, perhaps they are one and the same, I don't know, but I expect some cleverer people that me can explain the difference. I wonder if it is time for the RAC Magazine to lead the way and change its name to the Cooling Industry Magazine, and should the IoR change its name to the Cooling Institute? I just wonder if we as an industry should embrace change or should we shall we let it divide this industry.
