Cooling bodies agree co-operation over promotion of natural refrigerants


Andrew, I can't speak for the Awards invitations having never received one, but I thought that the magazine title had solved the problem years ago by using the abbreviation RAC when it changed it's name from Modern Refrigeration (long before your time). We all know what the abbreviation RAC stands for. As to the Awards themselves, I understand they are known as the RAC Cooling Industry Awards. Why not just the RAC Industry Awards? And as for the addition of heat pumps etc, many are now using the abbreviation RACHP. But I am sure that you are already award of this. I don't know the answer, or even if there is a question here actually. It is more an observation and a feeling, that the R word is becoming some how tainted so people are moving towards the more socially accepted cooling and cold. We hear of the ColdChain, the Cold Economy, the Cooling Awards, it just makes me wonder And yes, the world cooling is a poor substitute for Air Conditioning. Air conditioning is a far better description of what is happening. In the refrigeration industry I often hear of evaporators described as coolers. But i agree with you, that getting all elements of this industry (whatever it is called) to talk more is a problem. In an age when a sustainable solution more than ever requires an integrated approach, communication between all disciplines is essential. I will leave that problem to you and those better placed to solve it. Good luck
